Jacobs said he is not surprised seeing them around Mr. Rawlings because it is their character
The Central Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described as “hypocrites” some of the party leaders who graced the June 4 anniversary celebration.
Bernard Allotey Jacobs claimed majority of those who went have presidential ambition thus want to court the support of former President Jerry John Rawlings ahead of NDC’s flagbearership race.
For the first time in many years some notable members of the NDC graced the 38th Anniversary of the June 4, 1979 uprising at Wa in the Upper West region.
Key among them are presidential hopefuls South, Haruna Iddrisu, Member of Parliament for Tamale, Nadowli-Kaleo MP Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, former Trade Minister, Dr. Ekwow Spio Garbrah Dr Benjamin Bewa-nyog Kunbuor, former NDC National Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei and many others.
When they got the opportunity, they urged NDC members to ensure the values of the June 4 Revolution are not eroded.
But Allotey Jacobs in an interview on Adom News said all the leaders went them for their selfish gains.
“It is hypocrisy and opportunism. A lot of the people who went there are presidential aspirants so they fighting to catch the eye of former President Rawlings” he stated.
The outspoken Central regional Chairman bemoaned how leading members have all of a sudden switched camp after President Mahama lost the elections.
“So far as John Mahama is no longer the president, that mystic aura around him is gone so they are shifting loyalty” he stressed.
Allotey Jacobs said he is not surprised seeing them around Mr. Rawlings because it is their character.
