Former First lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings has pledged to prosecute a campaign based on issues rather than personal attacks following her endorsement as the flag bearer of the National Democratic Party (NDP) for the December 7 elections.

After the close of nominations only Mrs Rawlings had filed to contest for the position and in accordance with the party’s constitution, the National Executive Committee accordingly endorsed her candidature.

Last Thursday, Mrs Rawlings resigned from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of which his husband is the founder, to contest for the flag bearer position of the NDP.

The former First lady, who lost the NDC flag bearer contest with the late President Mills last year, entered the Baba Yara Stadium, the venue for the NDP congress with her husband Flt Lt Rawlings, in one vehicle.

She was in an all white attire with a headgear to match and beaming with smiles she waved to the enthusiastic supporters at the stadium (the 45,000 capacity stadium was about a quarter full) while Mr Rawlings did the victory sign before the two were led to take their seats,

In her acceptance speech, Mrs Rawlings said her election represented the dawn of a new era to transform the nation for a brighter future.

She stated that she was not born to be a failure even though she had faced many challenges in life.

“Failure is staying down when you trip or stumble. It’s giving up when your confidence is shaken. It’s shutting down when your character is tested.”

The former first lady said she had chosen to become bolder and braver to fight to improve the lives of the people of Ghana.

She said she had taken tough decisions and difficult choices in life when there were easier ones available because of her quest to work at improving the lives of the down trodden.

“In the face of criticisms and personal attacks, I have taken on unpopular issues that always put the concern of people first because I am, and always will be guided by moral obligation to support the needs of the people over the interest of politics,” she said.

The flag bearer promised equal access to education, and healthcare as well as massive job creation if she wins the elections.

She mentioned that the NDP was built on the ideals of former President Rawlings “who transformed the political paradigm of Ghana through the creation of governance that involves all levels of society.”

She accused the NDC government of turning the country into a place of restlessness, poverty, and unemployment and discontent and said only the transformative change, which she espoused, could turn things round.

The national chairman of the NDP, Dr Nii Armah Josiah Aryeh, said with Mrs Rawlings in the seat, the party was prepared to fight to win the elections.

A good party, he said, needs a good captain, but was quick to admonish party supporters to work hard to make victory a reality.

Dr Aryeh was happy about what he described as “the cracking atmosphere in the party and the combustible energy of the membership” and said that was what was putting fear in the NDC.
