Touching on a number of issues, mainly narrations of things that happened while he was in power, Flt Lt Rawlings bemoaned the monitisation of Ghana’s electoral process which he said did not help safeguard a just and accountable society.
He lamented the perpetuation of an imbalance society by successive governments and the failure to prosecute wrongdoers.
“The domineering class should not be allowed to live above the law,” he said.
The former Eastern Regional Minister under the Rawlings era, Mr Antwi-Boasiako Sekyere, said the NDC was gradually losing its social democratic status and it was one of the main factors that led to the party’s defeat in 2016.
Contrary to views expressed by Flt Lt Rawlings, Mr Antwi-Boasiako Sekyere said cadres have a crucial role to play in ensuring victory in the 2020 elections.
He called for “collective energies and expertise to help the party win the next elections.
“It is time to rescue the nation from the NPP government and build a brighter future for the youth,” he said.
He called for a serious grassroots participation including house to house campaigning to win power.
The former regional minister urged the cadres to back John Dramani Mahama to win the next elections.
