Stop Shedding Crocodile Tears Over Rawlings’ Death – NDP Warns NDC
Leadership of the National Democratic Party, NDP has taken the opposition NDC to the cleaners, accusing the latter of attempting to use the death of former President Jerry John Rawlings to salvage the Party’s dwindling electoral fortunes.
In a press conference which was addressed by Secretary General of the Party, Alhaji Mohamed Frimpong was expected to address reports that the NDP flagbearer Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings has rescinded her decision to contest this year’s election in honour of her late husband.
But things took an unusual turn when the Party’s Secretary General launched series of attacks on the opposition NDC, accusing them of trying to profiteer from the death of the former President.
He cited examples of speeches by leadership of the NDC which sought to create the impression that the NDC deserved sympathy votes due to the death of its founder.
According to the Secretary General of the NDP, the NDC has all of a sudden assumed the role of ‘chief mourners’ of the late President whose family clearly wasn’t in the good books of the Party prior to his demise.
The NDC has in recent days embarked on various constituency walks in various parts of the Country to honour the late former President Rawlings, a move the NDP says is a clear ploy to use the death of its founder to appeal to the emotions of innocent Ghanaians who had love for former President Rawlings.
He ended by urging Ghanaians to reject the NDC in the upcoming December elections because it was now obvious that members of the Party did not ascribe to values and conventions of their former President before his demise.
