Video: Former NDC communicator explains 24-hour economy by referencing animal farming

Veteran member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. William Atta Owusu has resigned from the party following its decision to disown him despite his long-standing service.

During an appearance on Kumasi-based Boss FM, Owusu discussed the 24-hour economy policy proposed by John Dramani Mahama, emphasizing its potential to create jobs if Mahama wins the 2024 election.

In a video that went viral on social media, Owusu elaborated on the policy, particularly its impact on animal farming. He mentioned modern farming techniques, drawing a parallel to practices in Pudong, China, where wild animals like lions and elephants are part of the farming ecosystem. According to Owusu, this model could boost tourism and require specialized personnel for feeding and veterinary care, thus creating employment opportunities.

However, his comments prompted the Ashanti Regional Communication Directorate of the NDC to issue a statement disassociating the party from his views. This led Owusu to resign, expressing profound disappointment with the party’s leadership.

In his resignation statement, Dr. Owusu wrote, “I, Dr. William Atta Owusu, am left with no choice but to tender my resignation from the National Democratic Congress (NDC), effective immediately.” He lamented being “shamefully disowned and dismissed” by those who had benefited from his dedication.

Owusu condemned the NDC leadership’s actions as a “cowardly attempt to distance themselves” from him, revealing the party’s true nature as one of “deceit, betrayal, and ingratitude.” He declared his unwillingness to remain part of an organization that readily discards its loyal members and stated that his resignation reflects the party’s toxic politics and lack of regard for its members’ well-being. “Farewell, NDC. Your loss is my gain,” he concluded.
