Ghana, even though a multi-party state is largely covered by the activities of only political parties, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC). This means that any little division among any of the parties will reduce their numbers hence leading to the loss of an election.
One may attribute the 2 times loss of the NDC in the 2016 and 2020 elections to the division that cracked the party after the wife of former President and Founder of the Party, J.J Rawlings of blessed memory, Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings went on to form her own political party.
As every concerned member of the NDC party is trying their best to make the party come out of the 2024 elections with victory, many call that the crack in the party be mended by the leadership and elders of the party.
Speaking on the same topic, the daughter of the founder of the party, Dr. Zanetor Agyemang-Rawlings, who happens to be the Member of Parliament for the Klottey Korle Constituency has called on the leadership of the party to put all steps in place to accept Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings back into the party as it will unite those who defected.
“On this particular occasion, let me say the thing that nobody wants to say. Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings is an integral part of this party. Let us do what we have to do to bring her back. In every family, there is conflict.
“But in every family, there are elders who will be part of the mediation of the conflict. We are calling on our elders. We don’t know what tomorrow holds. But if we want true victory, a convincing win, so that we can rescue the people of Ghana from where we are today, let us do what we have to do,” the MP said.
