In an explosive press conference held this afternoon, the National Democratic Party (NDP) has slammed flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama for taking advantage of the death of former President Jerry John Rawlings to make political gains ahead of the upcoming elections.
General Secretary of the NDP, Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong who addressed the media also said the NDC is being hypocritical in the wake of the demise of the late statesman.
“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 said.
“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”, he added.
