- Former President Rawlings had blamed the NDC's 2016 election defeat on greed and corruption in the party
- The former NDC chairman has urged John Mahama to respond in kind to Rawlings' constant jabs at him
- He stated the June 4 annual celebration will lose its relevance once Rawlings passes away
Alhaji Mohammed Saani, the former deputy regional chairman of the National Democratic Congress has expressed disappointment in Former President Mahama's refusal to refute the remarks by Former President Rawlings.
He lamented about John Mahama's nonchalance at Former President Rawlings' constant berating of him over the last couple of years.
Alhaji Sani was speaking on Abusua FM's morning program when he stated, "I blame ex-Pesident John Dramani Mahama for been too quiet, his silence is long overdue, he should shut Rawlings up for speaking ill about him and his government. I don’t understand why ex- President Mahama has been so quiet. Everybody knows that Rawlings has been telling lies, but NDC members are all quiet, why the silence?, I don’t get it. The truth must be told to Rawlings in the face."
According to Alhaji Saani, Former President John Mahama should no longer sit quietly as the NDC founder continues to throw jabs at him, and should give adequate equal responses to Rawlings' jabs.
Alhaji Saani further dismissed Rawlings' claims of having information on former appointees of Mahama that were corrupt during their time in power, and urged NDC members to ignore Rawlings and rather concentrate on making a comeback in 2020.
The former NDC chairman also stated that the June 4 annual celebration will lose its relevance once the main celebrant, Former President Rawlings passes away.
He said the events that surround the celebration of that date do not interest many of the party's members anymore, especially since very few NDC members currently support Rawlings, as such the event has lost its importance in the eyes of the public.
Alhaji Saani noted that J.J Rawlings was not the only founding members of the National Democratic Congress, hence his need to take back the party from its current executive leadership will be futile.
