I won't campaign for Zanetor on NDC platform - Nana Konadu
According to Nana Konadu, she will guide Zanetor Rawlings in her political career but she will not campaign for her on the platform.
Nana Konadu said she will guide Zanetor Rawlings in her political career but she will not campaign for her on the platform.
Speaking on Joy FM Tuesday morning, Nana Konadu said "She is an adult and she’s grown up in an open house."
She stated that her family is an open minded family that accepts critique.
"We are a family of open-mindedness; we do accept criticism and we do accept correction and support. In her running in the NDC, if she had asked my opinion it would have been different but she took her decision and I think that she is entitled to that decision because she’s an adult and she has grown up in an open house. So yes; maybe I won’t stand on her platform but I will give her the meanderings of how to get up. I will give her a pat on the back," she said.
"Maybe I won’t stand on her platform, but I will give her the meanderings of how to get to her destination," the former first lady added.
She said she is not going back to the NDC because the issues that made her leave the party have not been addressed.

Meanwhile, former President, Flt Lt Jerry Rawlings surprised many when he appeared at the campaign rally organised by his daughter to kick-start stage two of her campaign to be elected as the NDC Parliamentary candidate for Korle Klottey constituency on Sunday, October 18, 2015.
The former President who caused a frenzy amongst an already charged crowd, discounted claims that Zanetor did not hail from the constituency and charged delegates to vote on issues and not on monetary and material considerations.
The former President said Zanetor was born and bred in the constituency and has always had the desire to serve the people.
The atmosphere at the Mandela Park near the Osu Castle was charged long before the arrival of the founder of the NDC.
Dr Agyeman-Rawlings in her address charged her supporters to vote for people with genuine intentions.
