- Victor Smith NDC leadership must be bold and call Jerry Rawlings to order
- The top NDC man says Rawlings' attacks on NDC and Mahama are unwarranted
A top ranking member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Victor Smith has descended heavily on the founder of the NDC party, Jerry John Rawlings.
According to the former NDC Special Aide, it is hypocritical on the part of Chairman Rawlings to make claims that John Dramani Mahama and his administration neglected him by not consulting him.
Speaking on GhanaWeb’s ‘21 Munities’, Victor Smith insisted that it was a common thing at the time to spot Jerry Rawlings at the official residence of Former President Mahama, having coffee together.
The former Ghana’s ambassador to the United Kingdom in his interview, vehemently denied claims made by Jerry Rawlings that the top hierarchy of the NDC neglected him and his entire family.
“He [Rawlings] used to visit President Mahama to have coffee. I know that for a fact. When he arrives at President Mahama’s residence in the morning, he is given preferential treatment because of who he [is] you know,” Mr Smith told GhanaWeb’s KKB.
Ambassador Smith who was clearly not happy about the conduct of his former boss called on members of the NDC to continue asking him the “why question.”
“So we don’t understand why he is doing this to us… that’s way the NDC people should be asking him: why, why, why?” he lamented.
Victor Smith in his conversation stated that Chairman Rawlings usually raises issues about Prof Mills, failing to prosecute some officials of the John Kufuor’s administration for so many offenses in his estimation went wrong at the time.
It could be recalled that the then President of the Republic, Flt Lt. JJ Rawlings on April 9, 2008 allegedly fired Mr Smith, as his official spokesperson, via text message
Victor Smith’s style of dismissal became a toast of the day on various media platforms, and he [Smith] has since not seen eye-to-eye with Jerry Rawlings.
