Outspoken Member Parliament for Lower Manya Krobo, Michael Teye Nyaunu has laughed off a statement issued by leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in connection with the newly formed political party - NDP.
The NDC issued a statement on Friday dissociating its founder, ex President Rawlings from the National Democratic Party (NDP), which is yet to be given mandate by the Electoral Commission.
According to the NDC, though wife of the founder of the NDC is believed to be a key member of the NDP, former President Rawlings has not come out to declare his allegiance to the NDP.
The party therefore stated that it will not comment on the current situation until former President Rawlings comes out to confirm or deny the rumour.
However, speaking to XYZ News, Michael Teye Nyaunu chided the action by the NDC, describing it as laughable.
“When did the party start respecting the founder, when did they consider him as the founder, I am just surprised at this gimmicks that is being played” Mr. Nyaunu said.
He added that “Rawlings is not a member but nobody is supposed to make a statement for and on behalf of Rawlings. I think they better stay focused”.
But Propaganda Secretary of the NDC, Richard Quashing says until Mr. Rawlings comes out to declare his loyalty to the NDP, the NDC will consider any association with him to the NDP as mere speculation.
“Many people have tried very hard to associate the founder of the NDC with the formation of this party but former President has not come out to say that he is behind the formation of any new political party”.
