The National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has broken his silence on the recent appeal by Dr. Zanetor Agyemang-Rawlings for Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings to be brought back into the party.
According to him, Dr. Zanetor’s passionate appeal to bring back Nana Konadu into the NDC will be treated by the party leadership with the seriousness it deserves.
“…I listened to our daughter making a very passionate appeal to the party and I want to assure her that we will take up the request with all the seriousness it deserves because the saying is unity lies strength and of course we as a party can only thrive when we bring all shades of opinion and work as a team,” he stated.
His comments came after the daughter of the Former President Jerry John Rawlings made a passionate appeal at a press conference held at the party headquarters in commemoration of the founder on Friday, November 12, 2021.
Mrs. Rawlings contested the late Former President John Evans Atta-Mills in 2008 during the party’s presidential primaries but lost woefully; a situation which some believe informed her decision to establish her own party; the National Democratic Party (NDP) in 2012.
The former First Lady resigned from the NDC in 2012.
Mrs. Rawlings has since been very critical of the NDC, and has on several occasions questioned the running of the country during the party’s tenure.
She has also vowed never to return to the NDC under any circumstance.
