Kofi Adams was explaining why Mr. Rawlings did not attend the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) Greater Accra rally on Saturday.
Speaking on Dwaso Nsem on Adom FM on Monday, Mr. Adams said it would have been difficult for the former president to speak at the rally because he (Rawlings) has been speaking against corruption and the party has failed to address the issue of corruption, with the judgment debt payments as a glaring example.
Kofi Adams, who is also the Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, noted that the absence of the Rawlingses from the rally also stems from their neglect by the party and some bizarre happenings, adding “anyone who claims not to know these happenings may be unfair.”
He explained that former President Rawlings received his invitation letter to the rally just two days before the event and said people should not overstretch why Mr. Rawlings did not attend the rally.
The Chairman of the UK/Ireland branch of the NDC, Horace Nii Ankrah, who also spoke on Dwaso Nsem appealed to the party executives to do all they can to re-establish cordial relations with the Rawlingses.
He noted that party unity is crucial for success in the December polls and asked that all factions reunite for victory.
