Former President John Mahama and aspiring flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress has urged all party to be calm about the utterances of the ex-president Jerry John Rawlings and show the founder of their party some respect.
His call comes at the back of criticisms party members often direct towards the founder of the party, who they accused of being in bed with the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and making statements the brings the image of the NDC's into disrepute.
John Mahama said this while speaking at the party's unity walk in Wa in the Upper West Region on Saturday.
“I want to talk about our Founder," he said.
"You might not like something he says or an action he is taking. You might disagree with his views but do not insult his person,” he added.
Weeks ago, Mahama’s former Vice President,Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur rejected claims the tough talking Rawlings has been soft on the NPP and President Akufo-Addo.
I don’t know what this thing about romancing is. When he attends the State of the Nation, people say that he is romancing the NPP. I say that he is a former President of the Republic. We paid him as President for eight years. It means that we have taken his life like ours and for the next 20, 30 years, as long as he lives, he is our property, and he should participate in all those things,” Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur had said.
“So when he attends national events, I don’t think he is attending it because he is romancing one side or supporting the other side.”
