MAHAMA BOYS ATTACK RAWLINGS, VOLTA CHIEFS OVER PLOT AGAINST 2020 COMEBACK

Politics

A pro-Mahama group, the Social Democratic Forum of the NDC, led by unsung cadres Manan Mustapha and Alhassan Issahaku, have launched blistering attacks on former President Jerry John Rawlings, Togbe Afede, Volta Region NDC MPs and other leading members of the NDC who draw their political power clouts from the Volta Region.

A pro-Mahama group, the Social Democratic Forum of the NDC, led by unsung cadres Manan Mustapha and Alhassan Issahaku, have launched blistering attacks on former President Jerry John Rawlings, Togbe Afede, Volta Region NDC MPs and other leading members of the NDC who draw their political power clouts from the Volta Region.

 

The group is accusing them of tearing the NDC apart, instead of uniting under the John Mahama camp to fight the ruling New Patriotic Party as a united force to win the 2020 presidential election.

The group claims the plot against John Mahama was initiated in the run-up to the 2016 elections, and so had expected the defeat of the NDC to offer useful lessons, having witnessed how “incompetent the NPP can be”, and give the former president the benefit of the doubt to run again in the 2020 elections.

Apart from hacking former President Rawlings and Togbe Afede and Volta Chiefs, the group is bold enough to attack known voices which were vehement in vilifying Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2016 elections, interestingly describing such NDC activists as enemies of the last Mahama campaign and potential enemies of any intention to return John Mahama to power in 2016.

In a release to the media, the group cited General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, former NDC Chairman Obed Yao Asamoah and Kwabena Adjei, another ex-NDC Chairman, as all being privy to the plot hatched by the NDC ‘Volta Cults’to ditch John Mahama in the 2016 elections, and on and on into the next 2020 elections.

Others who were cited in the plot include former John Mahama Minister and MP Fifi Kwetey and Richard Quashigah, a key member of the NDC Communications Team. The last is Boateng Gyan, former NDC National Organiser.

The release further cited some unnamed NDC gurus from the North and accused them of silently supporting the plot “against their own.”

“Prior to the December elections, we repeatedly raised alarm on the clandestine Volta conspiracy to deny the charismatic JM a second term in office. We intercepted, and made public, several intelligence pointing to collaboration between the then opposition NPP and several NDC stalwarts in the Volta Region. The conspiracy included former President Rawlings whose hatred against JM is public knowledge and prominent Chiefs in the Volta region such as Togbe Afedge who has been hugely rewarded by the corrupt laden Akufo-Addo Government with the Board Chairmanship of NIB, a state bank,” the group claimed in its statement.

It added: “The conspiracy included MPs such as Richard Quashigah, Fiifi Kwetey and party folks such as Kwabena Adjei, Obed Asamoah, Aseidu Nketia, Boateng Gyan and many of the crump-eaters of the evil Volta cult.”

The group said it also warned the NDC that in the event of JM a defeat in the election, the totality of the North should in the future retaliate against a Volta candidate or a Volta-backed candidate, lamenting that “the evil axes” of the Volta region, in spite of their warnings, persisted and succeeded in their grand scheme to deny JM a second term in office.

According to the group, the last straw that broke the camel’s back was last week’s declaration by a duo of Volta Region leading members of support for Joshua Alabi, instead of allowing the party the “peace to painfully rebuild its structures to boot out the super incompetent Nana Addo Government.”

The release further said “the power-conscious Volta crooks and their collaborators at Adabraka” had started “an offensive onslaught on the humble personality of H. E John Mahama” and accused NDC Founder Rawlings of setting the stage by “throwing wild allegations against the much-expected come back of Ghana’s savior, JM into the 2020 race.”

“This has been followed by Victor Gbeho, Ken Dzirasah, Richard Quashigah (whose tenure as propaganda secretary witnessed unprecedented incompetence). Many Volta Chiefs and MPs are still very much active in the plot to fight JM comeback,” the group added.
