Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is a party of hypocrites and dishonest people who denigrated their founder, the late Jerry John Rawlings, but today, after his death, are marching for his values of probity and accountability.
“When Jerry John Rawlings was alive, they [NDC] were not marching for probity and accountability; they were rather disrespecting him, they were calling him ‘barking dog’, ‘the Volta god’, isn’t that the case?
“They were disrespecting him, they got babies with sharp teeth to attack him; isn’t that the case? Today, now that he’s dead, they are saying they are marching for probity and accountability.
“Their march should be named ‘the march for hypocrisy and dishonesty’. That is the march that they should be marching – hypocrisy and dishonesty”, Dr Bawumia told supporters of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the auditorium of the Yendi Senior High School in Yendi, Northern Region, on Saturday, 21 November 2020.
Mr Rawlings died on Thursday, 12 November 2020.
As part of activities to commemorate his passing, the NDC has been organising a series of activities such as vigils and marches in the late president’s memory.
