A leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Obuobia Darko-Opoku has said that the most treacherous career one can ever think of in Ghana is politics.
“I’ve told you out there that if there is any profession that you see a lot of treachery, evil, wicked people, it’s politics. Same people who smile with you, same people who eat with you are the ones who turn around and do all the wicked things,” she said in an interview
According to her, she experienced treachery from members of her own party in 2012 and 2016 while contesting as parliamentary candidate for Weija-Gbewaa in the Greater Accra Region
She recalled how a leading member of her party talked down one of her sponsors arguing there was no way she can win the seat at Weija-Gbawe for the NDC wondering why a member of her own party could scheme against her.
The Journalist said in politics what people enjoy is backbiting each other and destroying each other and afterwards talk about unity but that cannot be the case.
