The aftermath of the sad death of the former president of the republic of Ghana and founder of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Jerry John Rawlings is getting interesting despite most Ghanaians in a mourning mode.
The death of Rawlings came as a shock to Ghanaians, mostly the NDC members since their founder was fit and kicking after the burial of his mother and he showed no sign of weakness in him. There has been a book of condolence opened at the Accra International Conference Center for loved ones to bid the former president farewell.
After signing the book of condolence, the general secretary of the opposition NDC, Mr Johnson Assiedu Nketia, popularly known as general mosquito had a one- on-one interview with Accra based Adom Fm on their morning talk show dubbed, ‘Dwaso nsɛm’ where he sent a strong message to the wife of the late former president, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.
During the interview, the host of the show, Jerry Forson asked the general secretary the chances of Agyemang Rawlings in the NDC after her husband’s demise and the reply he gave was should the wife of their late founder decide to dissolve her party the NDP to re-join the NDC, they will welcome her with open arms.
According to him, their door remains open to accept her and her party. He said they will even accept their main opponents, the New Patriotic Party if they decide to join the NDC.
“Our doors remain open. Even if it gets to a point and the NPP wants to join our party, we will accept them. Political party is a living organism, people leave and people join. The important thing is that the party will be seen to be growing when those who are leaving are fewer than those who are coming on board”, he concluded.
