Source: citifmonline. com - The National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has said that the founder of the party, Jerry John Rawlings, cannot be blamed for the party’s defeat in the recent presidential elections.
According to Kofi Adams, a close associate of the Rawlings family, the party is yet to carry out an exercise to identify the real reasons for its loss in the December polls, and that it will be unfair to accuse the former President of being responsible.

“We went into the elections with the hope and desire to win. We did not win the elections. Leadership would have to take the responsibility for our inability to win the elections. Let us blame nobody, especially our founder.”

“Those of us in active leadership at the national, regional and at all levels should take responsibility for what has happened and let us focus on the next agenda which is making sure that once we hold the government to its promise and also make sure that no matter what we get back to power to continue the great job that the country deserves,” he said.

The NDC’s Greater Accra Regional Organiser, Anthony Nukpenu, in a Citi News interview, accused Mr. Rawlings of contributing to the defeat of the party by constantly labelling the Mahama government as corrupt, an allegation he said the NPP used against them.

But according to Mr. Kofi Adams, “Nobody has done any research to show why we lost, and until we have done so, the blame game must cease, and our former President and founding father must be allowed to have his peace while we work around a strategy to bring everything on board.”

Some political analysts have attributed the governing NDC’s loss in the elections to the recurring corruption scandals under the Mahama-led administration, as well as the arrogant posture of many of the government’s appointees.

The NPP won the December presidential polls with 53.85% of the total valid votes cast, against the NDC’s 44.40%, the worst defeat to have been recorded by a sitting President who was seeking a second term in office.
