Former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings has bemoaned the festering corruption in the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The former vice chairperson of the ruling party said the development, coupled with other issues, have put her off the “umbrella” family and will not want to associate herself with them.
On the issue of corruption, the founder of the 31st December Women’s Movement told Accra-based TV3 that “it is too much.”
Nana Konadu crossed carpet to join the National Democratic Party (NDP) over her inability to lead the party that her husband, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings, founded ahead of the 2012 elections.
She surmised that sitting president John Dramani Mahama has lost the fight against corruption, despite the latter’s assurance that he is on top of the campaign against the menace and will not care whose “ox is gored.”
“We will go after them… no matter whose ox is gored…we shall continue to fight corruption and will not be deterred by anybody,” Mahama told his Council of State members Monday.
However, the ex-First Lady feels such promises are mere rhetoric, calling on Mahama to demonstrate it.
“Let’s live by examples,” Nana Konadu told journalist Nana Aba Anamoah.
She has, however, rejected a plea by Rawlings to consider an NDC comeback.
“Even if I find it interesting, I will not escort my husband there… The conviction I had in going to some other place is still there and still relevant,” Nana Konadu pointed out.
