President Akufo-Addo on Thursday, February,08, 2018 waded into the internal politics of the main opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) saying ex-military leader and Founder of the NDC party, Jerry John Rawlings is no longer recognised by members of the party.
He made the comment while he acknowledged the presence of the former leader and his wife Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings as members jeered at him during his second State of the Nation Address on Thursday.
“Mr Speaker that is the way of the world, the founder of the party is today no longer recognised by the members of his party.” Mr Akufo-Addo said.
Rawlings who used to be a charming figure of the main opposition is struggling to keep afloat his relevance in his own party as the NDC has literally relegated the Rawlingses to the back burner vis a vis the internal politics of the NDC.
The party fell out with the ex-military leader and his family ahead of the 2016 general elections.
