Ernest Kofi Owusu-Benpah Bonsu, the Deputy Communications Director for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has stated that the main opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has lost its soul since the passing of the late former President Jerry John Rawlings, who was the party’s founder.
Rawlings served as the country’s first president under the 4th republic.
According to Mr. Owusu-Bempah, there is currently no one in charge of the NDC. He believes that this is the case.
On Thursday, March 30, he appeared on TV3’s The Big Issue and said, “Nobody is in charge at the moment; you know why—the sport of the NDC is gone with Jerry Rawlings.”
“At the moment, you have what we refer to as the Mahama cult, which consists of individuals who believe in the Mahama ideology.” You are not allowed to continue if you are not a supporter of Mahama.
“The NDC has evolved into a personality cult in which members are excluded from the group if they do not support the inept leader.”
In addition, he referred to the recent decision made by the NDC to change the leadership of their minority faction as “reckless.”
“This reckless decision of taking out Haruna and Muntaka, who has been able to win a seat for you in the heart of the NPP, is not right, but we are happy that strategically they don’t have a clue,” said Muntaka. “This decision is not right, but we are happy that strategically they don’t have a clue.”
