- Nana Agyemang-Rawlings believes critics of Nana Addo should give him more time to work than access him on just 100 days in office
- According to Agyeman-Rawlings, it would take more than 100 days to solve the “mess” created by the previous NDC government
A contestant in the 2016 General Elections, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings has called on the critics of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to “shut up”.
According to the former first lady of Ghana, no one should expect that the New Patriotic Party would use 100 days to fix the “problems” caused by the John Mahama-led government.
"A party has taken eight years to destroy us and you expect somebody to use 100 days to fix it?" she asked.
Even though Mrs Rawlings had contested the 2016 presidential elections on the ticket of the National Democratic Party (NDP), she seems to have found solace in her competition, Nana Addo winning over other contestants.
"I am happy there is a change...I am very happy...because you can't have a situation where we claim to be doing well, calling ourselves lower-middle income group, and in a miserable situation," she said.
Speaking on her former party, the National Democratic Congress, Mrs Agyeman-Rawlings stated that respect in the NDC waned to the level that even her husband was disrespected.
"We reached that level where the respect for the founder was not there," she complained.
Her husband, Fmr Lt. John Jerry Rawlings, is the founder of the NDC political party.
