The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia popularly known as General Mosquito has said that the best way the party can honour the memory of its founder, the Late Jerry John Rawlings is to win the December 7 elections.
He explained that the NDC supporters must stay true to the principles of probity and accountability which are the principles of the June 4, 1979 “Revolution” which is associated with the late Jerry John Rawlings.
“The principles of Rawlings are good, but they will be impotent if we are in opposition. So, the best tribute to President Rawlings is to be committed to the rescue mission”.
So be fired up by the temporary demise of our founder to win this election and rescue this nation Ghana which was dear to his heart from the very ills he fought against all his life.
Corruption today is worse than what he fought against on the occasion of June 4th.
Nepotism today is worse than what occasioned the June 4 revolution.
Let us fight to come to power. Let us revisit the idea of June 4 becoming one of the national holidays. We can only do this in power,” he stated.
Asiedu Nketia said this at a vigil organised in memory of the late former President at Obra Spot in Accra sighted by bibinionline.com.
He further noted, observing the principles of June 4 is the best way to keep President Rawlings’ memory alive.
