Nana Akonadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is wife of Late Former President Jerry John Rawlings, has made an explosive statement in a press conference this afternoon, Monday 23rd November 2020, saying that, former President John Dramani Mahama tried so hard to silence Rawlingsin the affairs of NDC when he was alive.
Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is the Presidential Candidate for National Democratic Party (NDC), held her press conference today at Alisa Hotel.
In the statement of the NDP, they slammed the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama for trying to use the death of Mr. Rawlings to get political sympathy to win votes in the coming general elections.
Reading on behalf of the party, the NDP General Secretary Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong who addressed the media said the NDC is being hypocritical in the wake of the demise of the late statesman.
He said “With what he did with the demise of former President Mills, he should not be allowed to do the same with the death of our beloved, former president Rawlings. And Ghanaians should not oblige to that. The hypocrisy of the NDC when Jerry John Rawlings was alive, [was such that] John Mahama desperately wanted to silence him and now that Rawlings is no more, Mahama finds it expedient to utilize his death to galvanize support for his weak base within the NDC rank and file and the country at large to salvage his 2020 campaign which is going nowhere.”
He added “Suddenly, the individuals within the NDC under the current leadership of John Mahama who publicly vilified Rawlings have rediscovered a new voice proclaiming themselves to the true adherent of his ideals and those who used foul languages against Rawlings are now hailing him.”
