NDC has idolized Rawlings, they worship him like Jesus Christ – MP

The NPP Member of Parliament for Kade, Mr Ofosu Asamoah has blamed some members of the National Democratic Congress for idolizing former President Rawlings and his family, thus making it difficult for them to see any faults from him.

Mr. Ofosu Asamoah told Adom News virtually worshipping former President Rawlings as if he were Jesus Christ has been the major cause of the internal conflicts in the NDC.

He said most people in the NDC are afraid to point out his mistakes to him even when his decisions do not help the interest of party adding that giving him accolades such as “father, founder and one and only” have made Mr. Rawlings feel he is immortal.

Mr Ofosu Asamoah noted that former President Rawlings has never believed in democracy and accused him of always wanting things to be done his way.

He said persons such as the Member of Parliament for Lower Manya Krobo, Micheal Teye Nyaunu; Sekou Nkrumah and Dr. Nii Josiah Aryeh who are in the camp of the Rwalingses, are unfortunately caught up in immortalizing him (Rawlings).

Mr. Ofosu Asamoah accused the former President of attempting to rule the country again through his wife Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings who is contesting President Mills for the NDC flagbearer slot in July.

According to him, since the Constitution does not permit Jerry Rawlings to contest any elections in Ghana again, he is trying to use his wife to indirectly rule the country.

He asserted that a vote for the former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings is a vote for Jerry Rawlings to rule the country again through the back door.
