Drag errant Rawlings to Disciplinary Committee – Victor Smith to NDC Executives

Former Ghana High Commissioner to the United Kingdom (UK), Victor Smith has called on the executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to call the party’s founder, Jerry John Rawlings to order.

According to him, this is a way of ensuring that calm is restored in the party which is seeking to win political power in 2020.

“Rawlings must be brought to book for bringing the name of the NDC into disrepute…he must be taken to the Disciplinary committee and this is long overdue,” he said.

The former President in his latest rant against the party, stated that the party has a lot of great, good people with solid integrity but a lot of the party’s grip is in the hands of those who lack integrity.

In an address delivered at a Town Hall meeting of cadres and NDC activists at the Arts Centre in Accra on Saturday, Mr. Rawlings condemned the situation where media propagandists sponsored by some within the party deliberately twist the truth in what he says to court negativity towards him.

Commenting on this latest rant on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen on Monday, Mr Smith said the executives of the NDC will do the party and its supporters lots of good if they call Rawlings to order.

He further called on Mr Rawlings to quit the party quietly if he is no longer interested in the affairs of NDC.

“This thing should have happened the very day he stood on NDP platforms…if Rawlings does not want to join the party again, he should go away, he should stop always questioning the reasoning of almost 5 million people…,” he said.
