The faces of all the General Secretaries of the NDC since 1992

Fifi Fiavi Kwetey will serve as general secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the main opposition party in the nation, for at least the next four years.

Many people have expressed interest in the post that designates him as the party’s CEO, particularly now that the one man who held that role for 27 years opted to hang up his boots.

All that was required for Fifi Kwetey to attempt his chances at the open position was the departure of Asiedu Nketiah as General Secretary, and he received his acclamation.

Fifi received 4,543 more votes than his nearest rivals, Dr. Peter Boamah Otokunor and Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, at the recently concluded National Delegates Congress, which was held at the Accra Sports Stadium.

As a result, since the NDC was founded in 1992, he is now the party’s fourth general secretary.

So who held the position of NDC General Secretary before Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, the former member of parliament for Ketu South?

Hudu Yahaya

In 1992, Hudu Yahaya was chosen to serve as the NDC’s first General Secretary.

He held the role through 2002.

The NDC won both the 1992 and 1996 presidential elections under his direction.

Hudu Yahaya was chosen to serve as the Northern Regional Minister at the age of 27.

Later, he was appointed Minister of Trade, Tourism, and Mobilization, concurrently leading both ministries.

He served as the NDC’s head of the dispute resolution committee and a member of the legal committee.

Hudu Yahaya became the party’s longest-serving vice chairman after serving as a National Vice Chairman from 2002 to 2014.

He made vain attempts to take over as the NDC’s national chairman.

Dr Josiah-Aryeh

Dr. Josiah-Aryeh replaced Hudu Yahaya as the party’s general secretary after Hudu Yahaya’s departure.

Dr. Nii Armah Josiah-Aryeh was born in 1958 in Jamestown in Accra, according to information posted on strasbourgconsortium.org.

He studied English, Modern History, and Law at the University of Ghana after graduating from Accra High School and Achimota School. He was also involved in student politics.

In 1983, he received his bar admission. He departed for the UK in April 1984 to pursue self-funded postgraduate studies, where he earned a PhD, an LLM from the LSE, and a Certificate in Law Teaching from University College London (SOAS).

In January 1998, he made his way back to Ghana, where he now works as a private attorney and teaches law at his alma university.

His once-weekly Upper-Cut essays for the widely read Daily Graphic helped to establish him as a sharp observer of broader societal issues.

He unsuccessfully ran for office as a member of parliament in 2000, but he later rose to the post of general secretary of the major opposition NDC during what was undoubtedly the most volatile time in Ghana’s political history.

 

He was removed from his General Secretary post soon after the 2004 elections on suspicion of planning to defect for financial gain.

He has written legal books, including Ghana Law of Wills, Ghana Property Law, Islamic Customary Law in Ghana, and Ghana Law Since Independence, which he co-edited and which was released by his faculty of law in honor of Ghana’s Golden Jubilee.

Following its founding by Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, the wife of the NDC’s founder, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, Dr. Josiah-Aryeh Aryeh, was named National Chairman of the NDP.

In December 2016 he passed away after a lengthy illness.

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah

The NDC’s longest-serving General Secretary is Asiedu Nketiah, also known as General Mosquito.

After being elected in 2005, he didn’t leave office until December 2022, when he declared his intention to run for the position of National Chairman, which he easily won.

Mr. Asiedu Nketia, also known as “General Mosquito,” was born on December 24, 1956, in Seikwa. In 1989, he was chosen to represent Seikwa in the first Wenchi District Assembly. This marked the beginning of his political career.

 

The Nkoranman Secondary School project, the Seikwa Health Centre project, the Seikwa and Dagadu Maize Markets project, and the Extension of Seikwa Palace project were some of the most ambitious development projects ever seen in the Seikwa area. He used his position as an assemblyman to rally his constituents behind these initiatives.

Asiedu Nketia was elected to the Consultative Parliament, which produced the 1992 Constitution, when Ghana voted to switch to constitutional government. For his contributions to the assembly, he was given the nickname “Heavy Weight.”

 

He quit his job as bank manager after being elected to the Consultative Assembly and was almost immediately hired as an investment analyst by the National Trust Holding Company Ltd. (NTHC).

Here too, he had to balance his work at the assembly with a part-time training at the Ghana Stock Exchange on stock brokerage and investment analysis. Asiedu Nketia was named the best student during his graduation, not just for his class but also for the entire time the course had been offered.

Other new stock trading firms started pursuing Mr. Asiedu Nketia, offering him enticing terms in an effort to lure him away from NTHC.

Parliamentary elections

As luck would have it, the young of the Wenchi West Constituency were putting increasing pressure on elders to rehire him to run in the parliamentary elections at around this time, following the enactment of the 1992 Constitution.

The management of NTHC was shocked when Asiedu Nketiah chose to forego these excellent financial prospects in order to answer the call to serve his community for the third time.

He earned an honor from Parliament and was kept on as a member of parliament for another 12 years, which says eloquently about his accomplishments.

He served on a number of parliamentary committees, including the Appointments, Finance, Public Accounts, Chairman, Mines and Energy, and Minority Spokesperson on Food, Agriculture, and Cocoa Affairs committees. Seikwa’s connection to the national grid, the market and lorry park complex’s permanent buildings, and the restoration and expansion of the Seikwa water supply system were among his accomplishments.

Deputy Minister

He was a Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture (Crops) from 1997 to 2001. During that time, he successfully implemented the following policies: Unified Agric Extension System, Decentralization of MOFA, Youth in Agriculture, High Tech Cocoa Maintenance, and the introduction of better varieties of rice, maize, and cassava. The National Democratic Congress (NDC), his party, lost the election that year, making it appear like the right option for him not to run for re-election to the House of Commons in order to go to Canada with his wife.

Defeat

The second consecutive defeat caused the party to become deeply divided, leading to the formation of several factions, which in turn created a sense of pessimism among the party’s rank-and-file members at the grassroots.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) government’s claimed aggressive criminalization campaign against NDC officials, which was intended to entirely destroy the party, made matters worse.

Political experts realized that the NDC could only be saved by having a leadership that could not only bring the diverse factions together but also stand up to the NPP’s intimidation.

Asiedu Nketia was quickly recognized as one of the team members that could complete the task. He was under increasing pressure from the membership to cancel his travel plans and accept the job of general secretary of the NDC. Mr. Asiedu Nketia was chosen as the party’s general secretary during the delegate congress, which took place at the Koforidua EREDEC Hotel.

General Secretary

He was elected as the third General Secretary of the NDC in December 2005 with about 80% of the vote.

In what was referred to as the “Mother of all Elections” in 2008, a revitalized NDC rose up under his leadership, ready to face head-to-head with the NPP. Under the direction of the Asiedu Nketia team, the election was won by Prof. Evans Atta Mills of the NDC. It is understandable why the party’s delegates at its national congress, held in Tamale in January 2010, voted 93% in favor of him to continue the better Ghana Agenda of the ruling NDC, despite public statements by influential party figures opposing his re-election.

Profile of Fifi Fiavi kwetey

Former MP for the Ketu South Constituency in Ghana, Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey is a politician from Ghana. From January 2013 until January 2021, he served as a National Democratic Congress (NDC) member of parliament.

Following that, Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey completed four years of secondary school at the famous College Protestant in Lome, which was at the time quite well-known. He earned the Brevet D’Etudes du Premier Cycle (BEPC).

 

He initially enrolled at an English-speaking institution, Bishop Herman College in Kpando, in 1984. He completed his O level in 1987. Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey was named the best student in Ghana that year and one of the top three students in all of west Africa by the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC). From then, Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey relocated to Achimota School to complete his A levels.

He then completed his studies at the University of Ghana, where he studied psychology and economics, graduating in 1993.

Prior to the elections in November and December 1992, he became leadership of the NDC on campus during his last year at Legon.

 

He earned the Diplômes de la Chambre de Commerce et d’Industrie de Paris (CCIP) (Higher Diploma, Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry) in 1994.

Fifi Kwetey completed his national service program after finishing his A Levels by teaching English at Tokor Junior High School (JHS), in Aflao. From October 1989 until June 1990, this occurred.

His second national service, which he completed at the office of Parliament from October 1993 to July 1994, provided him with his next employment chance.

In July 1995, Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey began working for the investment banking company Strategic African Securities Ltd.

 

He was a stockbroker and a financial analyst there. He was essential in setting up the company’s first publication of the Stock Market’s Annual Economic and Financial Review and Outlook at this time. This was the most thorough financial and economic research at the time and was the standard analytical study.

He went to join CDH Financial Holdings Ltd in April 1998 and worked there as a stockbroker, investment analyst, and fund manager until February 2002.

He also started teaching financial courses at the Ghana Stock Exchange at the same time.

 

Kwetey served as the head of the National Democratic Congress chapter on the University of Legon Campus while he was an undergraduate.

In the national NDC executive elections in December 2005, Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey ran and won the position of chief communicator for the NDC.

He was regarded as the one to attack the other parties and present significant concerns about their parties while defending his party on the required forums. He served as the primary communicator, which his party named as the party’s Propaganda Secretary. Later, the title Propaganda Secretary was changed to National Communications Officer.

 

In the 2012 Parliamentary Elections, Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey won the Ketu South National Democratic Congress primary. He won the primary by garnering 403 votes, defeating the then-incumbent Albert Ziga by 60 votes, Raphael Alorwu by 82 votes, Nyphson Agbagedy by 30 votes, and Raphael Alorwu by 60 votes.

Following that, Kwetey won the Ketu South parliamentary elections with 77,837 votes, or 88.92% of the total votes cast, defeating his closest rival, Godwin Yayra Nkuawu of the New Patriotic party, who received 4,122 votes, or 4.71%.

Prior to the 2016 parliamentary elections, Fiifi Kwetey was still the National Democratic Congress’s nominee for the Ketu South constituency. He defeated Sylvanus Amedorme, who received 1,375 votes, and Famous Kuadugah, who received 637 votes, to win the primary by receiving 146,10 votes, or 86.13%, at Denu, in the Volta Region.

He received 48,723 votes, or 65.47% of the total votes cast, defeating Jim Yao Morti, an independent candidate who received 18,643 votes, or 25.04%, to win the election to serve as the representative for Ketu South in the Ghanaian parliament for another term. Former NDC member Jim Yao Morti was running as an independent candidate after the NDC had suspended him and rejected him during the screening process.

Prior to the 2000 elections, Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey was a key player on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) media monitoring team. The squad was housed in Prof. John Evans Atta-Mills’ Kuku Hill office.

When call-ins were initially added to political radio programs around 1998, he was a prominent NDC voice on the air.

The Chairman of the Beno’s Maternity Branch in the Ketu South Constituency was Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey.

 

He still works behind the scenes at the party’s national communications office, which is run by attorney Sammy Gyamfi, and continues to serve as an inspiration to many of the party’s young activists and communicators.

Prior to the 2020 elections, he was an important member of the party’s economic and communication subcommittee.

He also held the position of Minister at the Presidency before being appointed Minister for Agriculture and Minister for Transport in the NDC cabinet of President John Dramani Mahama.

He underwent the most trying ministerial process earlier in 2009 and heroically and effectively resisted every attempt by the NPP minority to have him to admit that the NDC campaign that brought him victory in 2008 was only a campaign of deception.

Under former president John Evans Atta-Mills, he was appointed deputy minister of finance in 2009. For the next four years, he served as the party’s and the government’s principal economic spokesperson. He is warmly recalled for being a leading proponent of the Mills-Mahama administration’s “extraordinary achievements.”

He led a similar results collation outfit in Ridge again that year to allow the NDC to laugh while the late Sir John was persuading himself and his party that the NPP had won the 2012 elections.

He also oversaw the party results collation team that was established at Kanda during the 2008 elections. This team successfully collated the first-round and second-round results in record time, which was a feat that was crucial to the NDC’s success in stopping the NPP’s last-minute attempt to rig the election in the EC strongroom. Together with others in the strongroom, he battled valiantly to prevent the NPP’s attempt to destabilize the country from succeeding.

Additionally, he founded the NDC Forum for Setting the Records Straight and served as its spokesperson before to the 2008 elections.

 

While working for Jerry John Rawlings, he founded the Lens Newspaper and rose to the position of managing editor.

While serving in that capacity, he rose to prominence and frequently appeared on behalf of the NDC on prestigious programs like Newsfile. Subsequently, he took on the role of host of the Crossfire program for the NDC.

The amount of money Fifi Fiavi Franklin Kwetey is worth isn’t disclosed. He formerly held an article 71 post and earns a respectable living. His political career, his own enterprises, and other sources provide his money.
