The disputed General Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC) Bernard Mornah has been quoted on media platforms as describing the formation of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) “…as a complete waste of time and resources.” We unreservedly call on Bernard Mornah to stop his lies and concentrate on solving the many problems that are slowly but surely killing the PNC.
First of all, the PPP was not formed by Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom or any one individual. It is a collective, mass party formed by a team of men and women seeking to bring something different that can become a credible alternative to the NDC and the NPP. It appears that the effective and urgent manner with which the PPP has been moving threatens some political parties in such a manner that even when unprovoked, they seek to throw stones at our new political party.
Bernard Mornah it appears suffers from wanting to hear his own voice with regularity whether it is necessary or not. We do not want to believe that he is one of those PNC/CPP people who have joined forces over the years to promote the fortunes of the NDC against that of the parties they claim to represent. What else explains the behavior of a disputed General Secretary who jumps from radio station to radio station, tv station to tv station and from newspaper to newspaper defending the NDC’s Mills Administration while his own party suffers in a death grip?
It has been reported that “Mr. Mornah noted that Dr. Nduom’s refusal to allow the CPP to merge with the PNC in 2008 was a clear indication of his desire to continue to lead the CPP to become the president of Ghana.” Mornah should know rather, that those against the merger of PNC and the CPP remain with the CPP. Good luck to him and his planned PNC/CPP merger!
It was Dr. Nduom who led the CPP into negotiation for an alliance for the 2008 elections only to have Dr. Edward Mahama his Chairman Ramadan refuse to sign the agreement that was voted on at the Golden Tulip hotel by leaders from the two parties.
Was it not the same Bernard Mornah who somehow flew back to Ghana to lead opposition to the PNC/CPP alliance in 2008? Who sponsored him that time? Where does he get the nerve to speak against the very man who championed PNC/CPP unity at great risk to his own political fortune? Does he know the relationship that existed between the late President Hilla Limann that motivated the PNC founder to announce Dr. Nduom as his running mate earlier in the 4th Republic?
We have no time to deal with such distractions. Mornah should not tempt us with his lies!! The PPP would rather spend its time more productively looking for solutions to the massive cloud of corruption that is covering our dear country and the poverty of mind, leadership, housing, jobs, money, disease etc, etc.
