“You are paying too much attention on the Rawlingses”
By: Musah Umar Farouq, Wa
THE UPPER West Regional Branch of the June 4 Movement (JFM) has cautioned the National Democratic Congress (NDC) against concentrating its attention on the Rawlingses, at the expense of putting in place appropriate mechanism for serious campaign work towards the 2012 general elections.
The seemingly over concentration of the party’s activities on the former first family, according to the movement, could spell doom for the party in the upcoming general elections, if immediate steps are not taken to kick start electioneering campaign.
A statement issued in Wa and signed by the Regional Secretary of the movement, Mr. Geoffrey Tuu said “It is our considered view, however, that too much attention is being paid to the former first family at the expense of serious campaign work.”
He said “We call on former President Rawlings not to abandon the party he founded, as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) which he now seems to sympathize with, is waiting to devour him after he has destroyed what he toiled for,” the statement added.
Mr. Tuu said the days of the ‘scare crow’ have given way to pragmatic development, which has manifested in the “Better Ghana Agenda” being prosecuted by the Mills-John Mahama Presidency.
The statement also congratulated the Vice President for his sterling performance in public administration which has culminated into an honorary doctorate degree awarded him by a foreign University.
The Movement noted that the fact that the excellent works of the Vice President had been recognized by a foreign University is a plus for Ghana, no matter what contrary views his detractors hold.
The Movement, therefore, urged the Veep to continue to work assiduously to help the President deliver on his ‘Better Ghana Agenda’ for the total development of all Ghanaians
