A leading figure in the recently launched “Organising for Ghana” (OFG) movement, Goosie Tanoh, has called on the founder of the NDC, Former President Jerry John Rawlings, at his Ridge office in Accra.

A statement issued by the Communications Directorate of the office of Former President Rawlings indicated that Goosie Tanoh is also considering to run for the Presidency in 2020 on the ticket of the NDC.

Goosie Tanoh, a former aide to President Rawlings during the PNDC era, noted that the ethical collapse of state institutions and the grinding poverty and insecurity of Ghanaians today have dangerous similarities to the situation that Ghanaians confronted in the late 70s and early 80s.

He asserted that an urgent course-correction is required if Ghana is to avoid the kind of social collapse it faced in 1981.

This according to him will require a massive and sacrificial national mobilisation that not only solves the country’s material problems, but also challenges the selfish and elitist values and leadership practices that underpin them.

Goosie indicated to former President Rawlings that the OFG agenda is first to reorganise the NDC to restore voluntarism, participatory decision-making, integrity, and transparency.

He said that the OFG campaign is a successor, in a constitutional context, to the revolutionary struggles that President Rawlings led in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

On his part, President Rawlings again reiterated the need for a free and fair party electoral process at regional, national and flagbearer level.

He said it would be important that the campaign be devoid of the indecent money politics that had plagued it in recent years.

Flt. Lt. Rawlings stated that he would leave the decision as to who leads the NDC into the 2020 elections to the collective judgement of the delegates.

He affirmed his position not to be an obstacle to all those seeking leadership positions in the NDC.
