Mr. Emmanuel Ashaley Tetteh, Klottey Korle Communications Officer of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), on Thursday, denied media reports that Dr. Zanetor Rawlings, the party’s Constituency Parliamentary Candidate, is a mole.
He asked: “What is wrong if Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is the mother of Dr. Rawlings, is the Founder and Presidential Nominee of the NDP?
“Does that mean our candidate is automatically a member of the NDP? Is her family ties with the Flag bearer a barrier for her to join the political party of her choice?”
Mr. Tetteh, who was speaking to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, said since Dr. Rawlings decided to join politics, some people are bent to frustrate her and the efforts to link her to the political heritage of her parents, is one of the desperate attempts.
He said the publication also sought to link the constant criticisms of Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings against the current administration, to justify the insincerity of Dr. Rawlings to the NDC.
“As a Ghanaian, Former President and Founder and Leader of the NDC, is Flt Lt Rawlings not free to speak his mind about political and national issues he is concerned about?
“Can Dr. Rawlings stop his father from attending the NDP Congress in Accra that endorsed her mother as the Flagbearer,” Mr. Tetteh queried.
He called for calm heads in the constituency and for all to support Dr. Rawlings to concentrate on her efforts to win the seat for NDC on November 7 general election.
