Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings today told the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that victory in Election 2012 would depend on how quickly the leadership can restore dignity to the presidency, the government and the party.
Ex-President Rawlings was speaking at the NDC Special National Delegates Congress in Kumasi to endorse President John Dramani Mahama as the party’s flag bearer for Election 2012.
The NDC founder used the occasion to congratulate President John Dramani Mahama on his ascendancy to the office of President of the Republic, which attracted a huge deafening applause from the large audience.
Mr Bernard Mornah the General Secretary of the Peoples National Convention (PNC) in a solidarity message said the PNC would win the December elections because it had the youngest candidate.
“If we’re unable to get one-touch, we’ll count on the NDC’s support in case of a run-off between PNC and any other party”.
Mr Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, General Secretary of the Convention Peoples Party acknowledged the NDC’s role in honouring its founder, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
“As a party we appreciate and cannot forget the honour Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings and the late President John Evans Atta Mills have done to the memory Dr Kwame Nkrumah".
He therefore charged all political parties to work towards a peaceful election in December. "We know Mr John Mahama is a man of peace. We believe in peace and it is through peace that we can achieve the better Ghana agenda”.
He said the NPP believed President Mahama will hand over power to “Development Chief,” Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo come 2013.
