We won’t allow anyone to dictate to us how to mourn Rawlings – Ofosu Ampofo
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it will not allow external actors to decide the way it should mourn its founder, Jerry John Rawlings.
This comes after the party accused the government of sidelining them in processes leading up to the funeral of the late former President.
Its General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia also said besides the failure to mention the NDC in the president’s statement announcing the death of Rawlings, the party’s flagbearer, John Mahama was also prevented from signing Rawlings’ book of condolence at the Accra International Conference Centre last Friday, November 13, 2020.
Speaking after a health walk held in honour of the late former President, National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo advised members to be united in the face of this tragedy.
“We do not have any bone of contention with anyone, however, we will not allow anyone to dictate to us how we should mourn our Jerry John Rawlings. We will mourn the founder of our party how we want to. We will celebrate him together, today and tomorrow.”
