General News of Sunday, 3 June 2012
Former President Jerry John Rawlings has dealt yet another verbal blow to the National Democratic Congress and its executives, saying the party will lose the 2012 elections for throwing away the values and ideals of June 4.
According to him, the current crop of NDC members, especially those in leadership are leading the party in a different direction, far from the principles and values on which the party was founded.
He was speaking at Aflao in the Volta region as part of the 33 Anniversary celebration of the June 4 Uprising.
The Former President has, however, endorsed his wife as the best presidential candidate for the country in the December polls saying that she would be able to save the country from the current leadership paralysis.
He pleaded with the people to consider giving her the needed support to rule.
Former President Rawlings indicated that the NDC members, whom he referred to as traitors have plotted to destroy the party and strengthen the Convention People's Party (CPP).**
