The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, has instructed that no party official should say anything with regards to allegations the National Democratic Party, NDP.
Sammy Gyamfi's directive comes after the NDP made certain comments about the NDC during a press conference.
In an earlier report, the National Democratic Party (NDP) made claims that the flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama has taken advantage of Rawlings' death.
According to the party, Mahama is using former president Rawlings' death 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.
NDP, which is being led by former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, accused the flagbearer and some of the leaders of the NDC of trying to turn the supporters of the party against its own founder.
In a report filed by JoyNews, Sammy Gyamfi said the allegations leveled against the party are meant to distract them from propagating their campaign policies as the election draws near.
“Under no circumstance, should any communicator or party official comment on the content of the NDP’s presser,” he warned.
In a related development, 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.
