NDC leadership knows 2020 election is for NPP – Rawlings

JJ Rawlings

Former president Jerry John Rawlings has revealed the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) knows very well the party will not win Election 2020.

He has accused some party executives of grabbing leadership positions when they know their aim is the 2024 polls.

“For a Cadres meeting to be taking place, if we cannot do a serious indent examination of our strength and weakness then it is not a real Cadres meeting. It’s nice to hear your determination towards 2020 victory, and yes there are some among us in the leadership who initially didn’t think after four years you can wrestle power from this people,” Rawlings stated at a Cadre’s conference at Ejisu in the Ashanti region.

He added: “And yet, if I may speak frankly, have gone ahead and almost purchased the power of this party into the pocket and claiming to be aiming into 2020 when I know and some of you should know that their aim is not really towards 2020.

“Because it is not easy to wrestle power from this people in their so called mid-term strike but that natural drift could, may and will come possibly after 8 years. Meanwhile, you have secured 2020 out of the way for yourself, so you will be there  knowing down well that you are just using it as a transit when you know 2024 is your target.”

Rawlings is the founder of the NDC. The party lost power in 2016 with John Mahama becoming the first sitting president to have lost an election under the Fourth Republic of Ghana.
