NDC exhibiting hypocrisy and dishonesty in their so-called march for 'probity and accountability' to honour Rawlings


Summary short_text

Dr Bawumia's riposte was in response to the NDC's decision to embark on a march for probity and accountability in honour of former President Rawlings.
Dr Bawumia said, considering the well-known disrespect the NDC leadership showed to the late former President when he was alive, as well the several corruption cases recorded by the Mahama administration, he was astonished how the NDC leadership is pretending to love the ex-President after his death and exhibiting hypocritical guts to march for probity and accountability in his honour.
"Today, after the death of the former President, may his soul rest in peace, Jerry John Rawlings, they are now there saying that they are marching in his honour for probity and accountability. Where was the probity and accountability when they were chopping the SADA money?" Dr Bawumia stated.
