Rawlings: Someone Either Than Mills Will Emerge NDC’s Presidential Candidate In July

Former president Jerry John Rawlings says he is pained by the Governing National Democratic Congress (NDC’s) perilous departure from the values that made the party formidable force in the nation’s politics.

The NDC, under president John Atta Mills had become a salable commodity for sale “like some court houses are up for sale,” he regretted.

The former president was speaking to some NDC supporters who accompanied a flag-bearer contender of the party, Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah to Mr Rawlings’ house.

The founder of the NDC repeated allegations of intimidation and vote buying by the Mills campaign saying that was unlike the NDC.

Grounding his claims, Mr Rawlings said the teeming crowds that blocked roads when president Mills picked his nomination forms at the party office was bought and that there was no energy in the crowd.

Touching on the controversial GH¢90 million the Mills team is planning to spend on the campaign for the flag-bearership, which is currently a subject of investigations by the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI), former president Rawlings said the allegations were no fluke.

He said denials by the president himself and some government were a desperate attempt to sweep the damning revelation under the carpet.

The veracity of the allegations which were made by businessman, Herbert Mensah – who has not been able to produce the tape he said he had to back the claims – was unassailable, according to Mr Rawlings.

He cautioned delegates of the NDC to be wary of the grand manipulation of the government which is seeking to subvert the popular will of the people by corrupting electoral process in the lead up to the governing party’s delegates’ congress.

Mr Rawlings is convinced someone either than President Mills will emerge the presidential candidate of the NDC after the July 8 Congress.

  2. This is the reason why President Nelson Mandela is being regarded the most intelligent African leader ever.
    He’s quiet and not meddling in his party’s affairs.
    This greedy bastard JATO wants to come back because there are alot of brain dead followers waiting for him thinking he’s African whiteman.

    • CORRECTION: NO ONE HAS EVER REGARDED PRESIDENT MANDELA AS THE MOST INTELLIGENT AFRICAN! HE IS A FREEDOM FIGHTER. HE CANNOT BE RANKED AMONGST AFRICA’S MOST INTELLIGENT PEOPLE OR LEADERS. STOPPING MAKING THINGS UP AND MAKE YOUR POINT.

  3. why do most african presidents like to end in shame and disrespect? instead of them to sit back and offer their advices when called upon by the country they rather involve in useless controversial issues that makes them loose respect in the end?

  4. that ‘someone’ will certainly not be nana konadu, why is rawlings having an attitude of crabology, he can’t contest any longer hence he must distablise the party!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Atta Mills should cotow to what JJ says, afterall he made him what he is now

  6. RAWLINGS IS A DISGRACE, HE IS LOOKING AT HIS OWN MIRROR, MANIPULATIVE, AND SELLING NDC TO HIMSELF.HE SHOULD RELEASE THE TAPE THAT HE AND HERBERT MENSAH CLAIM THEY HAVE. ONLY FOOLS WILL FOLLOW HIM.THEY NEED TO BE ARRESTED IF THEY DON’T RELEASE THE TAPE
