The General Secretary of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong, has described the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as hypocrites.
According to him, the NDC is taking advantage of the death of the founder of the party to resurrect the NDC’s dead campaign and to make political gains ahead of the upcoming elections.
“With what he did with the demise of former President Mills, he should not be allowed to do the same with the death of our beloved, former President Rawlings. And Ghanaians should not oblige to that.
“The hypocrisy of the NDC when Jerry John Rawlings was alive, was such that John Mahama desperately wanted to silence him and now that Rawlings is no more, Mahama finds it expedient to utilize his death to galvanize support for his weak base within the NDC rank and file the country at large to salvage his 2020 campaign which is going nowhere,” he stressed.
At a news press in Accra Monday, he revealed that the individuals in the NDC party who used to write or speak offensive languages against the former President are now praising his ideals.
“Suddenly, the individuals within the NDC under the current leadership of John Mahama who publicly vilified Rawlings have rediscovered a new voice proclaiming themselves to the true adherent of his ideals and those who used foul languages against Rawlings are now hailing him,” he added.
