Nana Konadu Rawlings, a former first lady and founder of the National Democratic Party, has launched a thinly-veiled attack on Dzifa Attivor for reportedly asking supporters in the Volta Region to retain the National Democratic Congress (NDC) so that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) does not jail her when it wins in November.
In a Facebook post, Nana Konadu likened the former transport minister to a thief who begs not to be reported to the police but to be given more years to steal.
Dzifa Attivor resigned in December 2015 after it emerged that a GhȻ3.6million deal she approved to brand 116 buses of the Metro Mass Transit Company had been inflated by about GhȻ1.5 million.
During the launch of a group called ‘Ketu South For Fifi And Mahama’ at Wodoaba in the Ketu South district of the Volta Region on Tuesday, she said the NPP targeted only members of her ethnic group for prosecution.
She added that if the Volta Region did not vote for the NDC, she would end up in jail with an NPP government in power.
