The National Democratic Party (NDP) being led by Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, wife of the late former President Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, has in a press conference this afternoon Monday, November 23, 2020 bitterly exposed the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its flagbearer John Dramani Mahama.
According to the Party, The NDC and John Dramani Mahama cannot win the upcoming elections on the back of sympathy votes.
They believe John Dramani Mahama and the NDC are pretending as if they love Rawlings, but they had severe hatred for him when he was alive.
Alhaji Muhamed Frimpong the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDP) who read the statement to the press indicated that Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings suffered with her husband to make the NDC what it is today.
He added that the current leadership of the NDC treated her with hatred, and later transferred it to her husband Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings (late).
According to him, Jerry John Rawlings died in pain as a result of the poor treatment meted out to him by John Dramani Mahama and the NDC.
“They have tried to harvest what they have not planted. It begun by Professor Kwamena Ahwoi and John Mahama. They raised babies with sharp teeth to destroy the reputation the late Jerry John Rawlings and his wife had built over the years.
The book by Professor Kwamena Ahwoi in particular was with the aim of destroying the gains of Rawlings. The late Jerry John Rawlings was heartbroken before his death. Nobody in the NDC made any statement condemning the content of the book by Ahwoi.
Today those babies with sharp teeth are hoping to win political power and occupy position in the NDC, after destroying the legacy of Jerry John Rawlings. What did Rawlings do to warrant this disrespect under Mahama and the NDC? General Secretary of Nana Konadu’s NDP Alhaji Muhammed Frimpong alleged.
He further alleged that, the current leadership of the NDC who tamed the former late President are now shedding crocodile tears after killing the soul of the Jerry John Rawlings even before his death.
He says John Dramani Mahama cannot win political power on the death of Jerry John Rawlings. He adds that John Dramni Mahama and the NDC are now working to utilize the death of Jerry John Rawlings to galvanize support to win political power, but that will not work.
“John Mahama desperately wanted to silence Jerry John Rawlings, and now they want to salvage their 2020 campaign which is going nowhere. John Mahama publicly verified Jerry John Rawlings. They called him a barking Dog. They called him Volta god who does not deserve to be worshipped. He turned Voltarians Against Rawlings. Now they want to win power and occupy positions”. They are robbing Rawlings of a befitting sendoff but it is too late”. Alhaji Muhammed Frimpong added.
