Rawlings Before His Death Never Wanted NDC To Bury Him – Nana Konadu’s NDP Reveals

Published

on


One of the wishes of former president Jerry John Rawlings before his demise was that the party he founded, National Democratic Congress (NDC), should not be the one to conduct his funeral rites.

According to the National Democratic Party (NDP), the former president, even at his mother’s funeral, was visibly pained and made his hurt known to John Mahama and the NDC for turning the solemn ceremony into an NDC event. “This was all captured on video.”

The NDP in addressing the media on Monday, November 23, noted that it was also the wish of Jerry John Rawlings to see John Mahama ousted as flagbearer of the NDC.

“When he was alive, he chose not to be a part of John Mahama’s 2020 campaign and it would be disingenuous to seek to make him a part of the campaign now that he is gone. So, the 2020 elections are due in a matter of weeks. But Rawlings is gone. However, ask yourself as a cadre or as a comrade, ask yourself as you mourn his passing, ask yourself as someone who shared the pain that Mahama and his supporters inflicted on Rawlings when he was alive, ask yourself as someone who believes in what Rawlings stood for: would Rawlings want you to vote for a candidate that he thought was not fit to lead the party that he Rawlings founded?

“As a matter of fact, Jerry John Rawlings was eager to see Mahama lose in 2020 [election] because he believed Mahama and his cohorts had departed from the very ideals of probity and accountability upon which the NDC was formed. When Mahama was elected as the flagbearer of the NDC for the 2020 general [election], Rawlings was blunt about Mahama’s intentions. According to Rawlings, Mahama’s intentions are not to win the 2020 general [election]. His intentions are to simply hijack the NDC with his money in an attempt to show up again as the party’s flag bearer in 2024.”

NDC Shouldn’t Dictate Our Flagbearer For Us – NPP MP

Published

on


The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) cannot be allowed to dictate to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) regarding who becomes their next flagbearer, legislator for the Achiase Constituency, Kofi Ahenkorah Marfo, has said.

According to him, the NPP will be distracted if they pay attention to the NDC and that will only be an added advantage to them in the 2024 polls.

“Dr. Bawumia should not be made Presidential candidate because of where he comes from but for his competency. I know he’ll deliver if given the nod. He’ll perform more than what ex-President Mahama and the NDC have done and will ever do”, he said on the Happy Morning Show on ETV.

“The NDC must not be listened to. We must not panic and give Bawumia the work because of what the NDC is saying. We will not allow the NDC dictate our flagbearer to us. Listening to them will be to our disadvantage”, he reiterated.

I Made Poloo Plead Guilty Because She Had A Bad Case – Lawyer

Published

on


Lawyer Andrew Vortia, Counsel for jailed socialite, Akuapem Poloo has disclosed that he run out of options and had no choice but to compel his client plead guilty to charges levelled against her.

According to him, looking at the evidence presented against Mrs Poloo, it was in her best interest to plead guilty to reduce her sentencing.

“When we were at the case management case stage, we evaluated all the evidence against her (pictorial) in the witness statement and we realized that we don’t have a good case. So when the case goes through full trial let’s say two or three months and she’s found culpable the sentence will be harsher than being a first-time offender pleading guilty,” he told the media after the judgement.

Akuapem Poloo was on Wednesday convicted on her own plea by the Circuit Court in Accra after pleading guilty to three charges, thus the publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, namely conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity and engaging in domestic violence that in any way detracts or is likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.

She was sentenced to 90 days on each count but the court said, the sentence must run concurrently, meaning she will only serve a 90-day jail term which is three months.

I Will Not Descend To Your Level – Osei Kyei Tells Agyarko Over His Backlash On ‘Akan Flagbearer’ Comment

Published

on


The Majority leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has refused to respond to comments made by NPP stalwart, Boakye Agyarko in the wake of comments made by the Suame MP concerning the NPP flagbearership race.

Mr Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu had said that it will not be wise for the NPP to present another Akan as flagbearer after President Akufo-Addo, especially considering the fact that the NPP has been labelled as an Akan party.

However, his comments did not sit down well with many people, including former Minister of Energy, Boakye Agyarko who lambasted the Suame MP.

In a reaction on Oman FM’s Boiling Point, Boakye Agyarko expressed disappointment in the majority leader, insisting that his comments are not fitting.

He described the majority leader’s comments as one that should be made by kids and bloody fools.

However, in a counter-reaction on Okay FM, Mr Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu refused to dignify his comrade’s comments with a response.

He however, expressed disappointment in Mr Agyarko, who he regarded as a stalwart of the NPP for failing to seek clarification on his comments before lambasting him in public.
