Bature said Mr. Rawlings’ support of his wife ambition to lead the breakaway National Democratic Party (NDP) is to scuttle the ruling party’s chances of retaining power in December.

The former President in an interview with Joy News’ Beatrice Adu declared his support for his wife should she be elected as flag-bearer of the NDP.

National Executives of the party have also confirmed Nana Konadu has picked nomination forms to contest the flagbearership position of NDP at its Delegate Congress to be held in Kumasi Saturday.

This interesting development has left people wondering about the true position of Jerry Rawlings who was reported to have also endorsed the candidature of President Mahama weeks ago.

But pollster Ben Ephson, contended that Konadu’s candidature will not pose any threat to the electoral fortunes of the NDC.

On Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Tuesday, Alhaji Bature described the conduct of former president Rawlings as a “blackmail”.

According to him, Mr. Rawlings cannot serve two masters therefore he must choose between the NDC and his wife.

“How can one man serve two masters? You want the NDC to win power and at the same time you are supporting your wife's NDP to scuttle NDC’s chances of winning power. Is this the same Rawlings we know” Bature bemoaned.

According to him, “The NDC has out grown the Rawlingses which they are refusing to abide by.The NDC can never be anybody’s baby”.

He added that the incessant attacks on key personalities of the ruling party by Mr. Rawlings is just to provide campaign ammunition to the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) to use against NDC to ensure its defeat.

Alhaji Bature urged the rank and file of the ruling party to re-strategise for a resounding victory in the December 7 polls.
