US-based Ghanaian investigative journalist, Kevin Taylor has warned the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) never to put their hopes in their founder, former President Rawlings as far as the December 2020 election is concerned but take their destiny into their own hands.
Mr. Taylor has stated that the biggest mistake the NDC will do going into election 2020 is to ever think Mr. Rawlings will endorse John Mahama’s 2020 campaign adding that looking up to Mr. Rawlings will make the NDC lose over 2million votes.
He was, however, quick to add that though Mr. Rawlings will never support their campaign does not mean they should disrespect him.
According to Mr. Taylor in his latest With All Due Respect show, the founder of the NDC is very scared of President Akufo-Addo and for that matter will never be bold to hold John Mahama’s hands and ask Ghanaians to vote for him.
“For JJ Rawlings to come out boldly and say, guys, vote for John Mahama? Vote for the NDC to make sure they rescue Ghana?….. He can’t. He is scared of Akufo-Addo” – Taylor said
Mr. Taylor added that JJ Rawlings knows any attempt he makes to campaign for John Mahama will incur the wrath of President Akufo-Addo who will go after him, his wife, and jail them.
The fearless journalist backed his argument with the fact that Ghanaians can note for a fact that former President Rawlings has never commented on any corruption allegations under the President Akufo-Addo’s government despite the numerous scandals the country has been recording since 2017 adding that he only makes open statements.
“JJ Rawlings is a coward, he can’t speak on corruption. He is scared of Akufo-Addo” – Kevin Taylor said
Kevin is also reminding the NDC that with the likes of Rawlings’ wife, Nana Konedu Agyemang-Rawlings they should forget Mr. Rawlings’ support because his wife has not yet forgiven late President Atta Mills and John Mahama for the 2011 defeat at the NDC Presidential primaries.
Mr. Taylor, however, expressed the fear that Mr. Rawlings’ inability to be bold and campaign for the NDC will end up destroying his daughter, Zanetor’s political career.
