Don't Give NPP Another Chance - Rawlings

By David Yarboi-Tetteh, Elmina -

THE former President, Jerry John Rawlings, has reiterated the need for the electorate to vote the New Patriotic Party out from office in the December 7 election.

He accused the current NPP administration of destroying the nation's economy and stated “they have over-stayed their welcome”.

Ex-President Rawlings said this at a rally at Elmina on Sunday when he made a stopover to address NDC supporters on his way to Accra from Takoradi.

The malfunctioning of the public address system resulted in the enthusiastic crowd competing with each other to hear what the former president had for them in terms of message.

Ex-President Rawlings stressed that the NPP had reduced Ghanaians to fourth class citizens which he noted had never happened in the nation's history.

He further accused the NPP of corruption and also added that the Kufuor administration had committed the worst form of atrocities against Ghanaians.

“If a civilian steals and is arrested by the police then you say is normal but if a government steals and is arrested by the army, then you say it is coup d'tat” he added.

He emphasised that the NPP had lost its popularity and added that the NDC is attracting more people than ever.

Ex-President Rawlings therefore threw a challenge to President Kufuor and Nana Akufo-Addo, the NPP's Presidential Candidate to compete with the NDC to see who had the voice of the people.
