Don't allow criticism descend you into the gutters - JJ to NDC

The former president was speaking at an event in Accra to celebrate the party's 24th anniversary.


“Tempers may rise and angry words exchanged, but the NDC must not allow its desire to stay in power compel its leaders at various levels to descend into the gutters and contribute to an atmosphere of insecurity. We have to accept criticism in good faith and recognize the fact that criticism is the best form of praise. It offers you an opportunity to assess your weakness and better appreciate how others perceive you,” former president Rawlings said.

According to him, it is unfortunate the extent at which government officials issue conflicting responses to allegations made against the Mahama-led administration.

“Today it is not uncommon for there to be multiple and contradictory responses from government officials to allegations against government or party. This is understandable, but also unpardonable,” the former president added.

Meanwhile, the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has indicated that the party’s manifesto is ready ahead of the 2016 elections.

He said the manifesto will be launched after President John Mahama gives his agreement.
