Former President RawlingsA former President of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings, is demanding the removal of Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the ruling NDC, as the key to the party’s retention of power in the upcoming general elections.

This is one of the many demands raised by the founder of the party during a meeting with chiefs from the Volta Region aimed at resolving the dispute between him and President John Evans Atta Mills.

A close ally of the Rawlingses and MP for Lower Manya, Michael Teye Nyaunu, who disclosed this to Citi News said ex-president Rawlings believes Mr. Nketia’s continuous hold of office as the party’s chief scribe is detrimental to the progress of the NDC.

“For Asiedu-Nketia to refer to the founding father of the party as a barking dog means he has lost the credibility to function as the General-Secretary of the NDC,” he told Citi News.

According to Hon. Nyaunu, although the founding father of the NDC did not refer to Asiedu Nketia as a threat or an enemy, Mr. Rawlings felt he was unsuitable to lead the party as the General-Secretary.

“There are also a lot of things that Mr. Rawlings finds displeasing and that includes the Woyome case,” the MP for Lower Manya revealed.

He said Mr. Rawlings was worried that the NDC government was marred with corruption which would adversely affect the confidence of supporters, six months away from the 2012 presidential elections.
