Mahama using Rawlings’ death to Awaken his dead campaign – NDP

The National Democratic Party (NDP) has slapped the flagbearer of the leading opposition NDC, John Dramani Mahama accusing him of taking advantage of the death of former President Jerry John Rawlings to make political gains ahead of the upcoming elections.

The party made the allegation at a press conference today, Monday, November 23, 2020. It thus urged Ghanaians not to fall for such tricks.

General Secretary of the NDP, Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong who addressed the media also said the NDC is being hypocritical.

According to him, the NDC is utilizing the death of the husband of NDP flagbearer, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings to resurrect the NDC’s “dead campaign”.

“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.”

“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.”

However, the party says its flagbearer, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings had not pulled out of the upcoming presidential elections.

“This is fake news and it should be regarded as such. Our leader has not given any information to that effect,” Alhaji Frimpong said.

Earlier reports claimed that Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings had withdrawn from the race due to the death of her husband, former President Jerry John Rawlings.

But the party dismissed the claims and attributed to its detractors.
