The Volta Caucus, a group of members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) from the Volta Region but based outside the region is urging the party’s founder, Mr Jerry John Rawlings and his former appointee Profess Kwamena Ahwoi to set aside their differences and work together to bring the party back to power.
Tensions between Mr Rawlings and Prof Ahwoi have come to a head in recent weeks following the publication of Prof Ahwoi’s ‘Working with Rawlings’, a book which details the latter’s observations of the NDC founder.
Mr Rawlings, in a lengthy response to claims made in the book, said the publication was full of factual inaccuracies and “generously economical with the truth”.
Reacting to the war of words between the two NDC stalwarts, the Volta Caucus, in a statement, said: “We, as a group, feel saddened that this issue will come up in such a crucial time as this when Ghanaians are crying for an electoral rescue from the maladministration and misrule of the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government.”
“The 2020 election is so crucial requiring all energy and hands-on-deck because it is that election which will, again, define Ghana’s destiny. It is an election which will have good triumph over evil and to return Ghana onto the path of development, departing from the status quo; an affinity for treachery and engagement in divisive politics; a typical case as we witnessed and suffered during the recent Voters Registration exercise,” the statement said.
