Central Regional Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described as unfortunate remarks by the flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom that some members of the NDC rejoiced at the demise of the late President John Mills.
Dr. Nduom is reported to have accused the members of the NDC of making merry over the demise of the late President John Evans Atta Mills.
According to him, although some NDC members pretend to be hurt by his death, many of their leaders believe that his death paved way for them to retain the presidency in the 2012 elections.
The business magnate while addressing a rally in Cape Coast urged the people of the Central Region not to allow themselves to be deceived again by the NDC in the upcoming election.
He said the NDC is not genuine about their promises to Ghanaians.
“Mills was our kinsman and he became the president. Some people criticized and attacked him until he died. And some of the NDC people themselves thanked God that Mills died, is that not strange? And after his death they came back here to tell us to replace him with another person from the Central region,” Dr Nduom said.
But Allotey Jacobs in an interview wondered why such remarks would come from a statesman and not from his followers.
He believes Paa Kwesi is making fun of the people of Central Region and the party as a whole.
“I am very disappointed in Paa Kwesi Nduom for those remarks made against Mills and the NDC. If he continues with those childish remarks, we will chase him out from the region,” he stated.
He therefore called on him to render an unqualified apology to the NDC and the people of the Central Region or face their wrath.
“Paa [Kwesi Nduom] should apologize to the NDC and the people of the Central Region because we think he is making fun of us else the people of Central Region will not accept him,” he noted.
