Although former president Jerry John Rawlings has recently renewed his membership card as a member of the main opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), the Director of Communications for Ghana Gas Company, Ernest Owusu Bempah has given hints with all certainty that the Founder of the NDC will not campaign for the party in the 2020 general elections.
Speaking in an exclusive interview on Hot FM,Owusu Bempah who double as the Communications Director for the National Democratic Party (NDP), a party founded by the wife of the founder of the NDC , said NDC will never receive the joy of regaining power since their only hope of that ever happening lies in the hands of Rawlings whom the party has taken for granted.
“It will be difficult for NDC to come to power in the next 15 years because the only person who holds the umbilical cord of the NDC is J.J Rawlings.
In 2020 Rawlings will not go and campaign for the NDC. NDC is going to be a political midget because J.J will not work for people to come to power, enjoy and disrespect him after everything.
The loud-mouth communicator who has been reported for consistently throwing jabs at the NDC, further decreed that the only way the NDC can win power is if someone from the Rawlings’ family leads the party:
“The only person that can bring NDC to power will have to be someone from the Rawlings’ family. Look, In 2018, NDC won the elections genuinely because Rawlings single-handedly campaigned throughout the country, strategise with them and brought them to power…
In 2012, it ended up in court because they (NDC) stole the mandate of the people and I can clearly state it.
But in 2016, the NPP and all political forces marshaled to guard against election rigging, that is why Nana Addo won overwhelmingly.” He categorically told Justice Kwaku Annan.
