Former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has said that Ghanaian Presidents will have to in the future consider conducting DNA tests before making appointments.

The former NDC scribe said this will be one of the ways of ensuring that they do not appoint ‘family members and others relatives’ as friends.

Koku made the point while commenting on the ranging debate on nepotism in the country.

“If the two parties [NDC and NPP] keep going on the tangent to further extend the conversation on nepotism, then we may have to do a DNA test prior to making appointments,” he said on Accra-based Kasapa FM as monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com.

He further questioned his party’s decision to politicize President’s Akufo-Addo decision to appoint some 51 friends and family members into public office.

Mr Anyidoho in expressing his descent asked: “if strangers should be the ones to govern Ghana”.
