Former Kumasi mayor, Kojo Bonsu, is optimistic that former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, will make a comeback to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the near future.
According to Mr Bonsu, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings' return is just a matter of time, and she can play a significant role as an elder in the party considering her involvement in its formation.
“She will be back, and it is just a matter of time. Upon her return, she can be an elder in the party because she was part of the formation of the party, and let us not take that away from her,” Mr Bonsu expressed in an interview on Face to Face on Citi TV.
Highlighting the importance of numbers in securing victory for the NDC in the upcoming 2024 general elections, Mr. Bonsu emphasized that every individual's support matters, regardless of the quantity.
“Even if she comes with just 20 people, it is still numbered because you win an election with 50 per cent plus one. If we all come together and unite, it makes our party strong,” he stated.
Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings resigned from the NDC in 2012 after contesting and losing to the late President John Evans Atta Mills during the NDC's presidential primaries in 2008.
Following her defeat, she founded her own party, the National Democratic Party (NDP), in 2012.
At that time, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings vowed never to return to the NDC under any circumstance.
However, her husband, the late former President John Rawlings, appealed to her to reconsider her decision and rejoin the party. Despite acknowledging her reasons for leaving, he believed her return would be beneficial.
