The National Democratic Party (NDP) is claiming that the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama is taking advantage of Rawlings' death.
According to the party, John Mahama is using former President Jerry John Rawlings to make political gains ahead of the upcoming elections.
Speaking at a press conference today, Monday, November 23, 2020, the General Secretary of the NDP, Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong who addressed the media said the NDC is being hypocritical.
Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong said the NDC is utilizing the death of the husband of NDP flagbearer, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings to resurrect the NDC’s “dead campaign”.
He said with what happened with death of former president Mills, Mahama should not be allowed to do the same with the death of former president Rawlings.
“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," he said.
He added that, Mahama desperately wanted to silence Rawlings when he was alive.
"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.”
Meanwhile, the National Democratic Party, NDP, has described as fake, news publication that it's flagbearer Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings had pulled out of the upcoming general elections.
Nana Konadu was reported to have pulled out of the 2020 presidential race as earlier reported by YEN.com.gh.
The reason for her withdrawal from the presidential elections was not clearly stated.
The NDP has named Ahwoi and Mahama as people who set out to damage the reputation of the late former president Jerry Rawlings even before his death.
