Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor has said the wife of the late Jerry John Rawlings, Konadu Agyemang Rawlings must reapply if she wants to return to the party.
Last Friday, the eldest daughter of the late Jerry John Rawlings, Zenator Rawlings at the 1st Anniversary of her late father appealed to the NDC to bury all issues and bring back her mother to the party.
“I want to use this opportunity to ask that as we remember the old man who we never expected to pass when he did, let’s make amends. Let us approach those we have wronged.
“At this juncture, I would want to say what no one wants to hear. Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings is an integral part of the party. Let us do all we can to bring her back. In every family there is conflict, but there are also elders who will mediate the conflict. We are calling on our elders, this is the time. We don’t know what tomorrow holds, but if we want victory to rescue the people of Ghana from their current situation, let us do what we have to do,” she said.
Speaking to Starr FM today, Peter Boamah Otokunor has proposed processes Konadu Agyeman Rawlings must follow to return to the party.
According to him, the wife of the late J.J Rawlings must file an application for party leaders to do the necessary considerations before any decision will be taken.
“The right to association is an inalienable right that has been bestowed to every citizen of this country and with such rights, its commission or omission can only be exercised by that person. So as we saw with Madam Konadu leaving the party, it was in exercise of her right that is why for now she is not a member of NDC and belongs to a different party.
“If she has realized that her action and her commission haven’t helped her in achieving her political or any objectives that she might have, it is just fair she comes back to the competition of the NDC. Relying on the republic of Ghana Constitution to commission, she can go through the procedure of becoming a member of the NDC. She has to apply and the leadership will consider the application and just follow the procedure,” the NDC General Secretary shared.
In the midst of the calls for Konadu Agyeman Rawlings to return to the NDC, she is yet to personally comment on the matter.
