I can’t criticise Rawlings openly – Vanderpuije – Starr Fm


The MP for Odododiodoo constituency, Nii Lante Vanderpuije, has said he does not believe in openly criticising the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings.

“I don’t believe in the situation that, whereby the founder does something and I go out there and criticise him in the open and I do something and the founder go out there and criticize me in the open,” the outspoken politician stated.

He stressed: “I still believe in the ideals and the things he stands for,” adding the former president has been a “great inspiration.”

Speaking on Accra-based Radio Gold, Vanderpuije advised that anytime an issue comes up within the party, it must be dealt with as it is.

“If we are in a party and I am doing something that is wrong, the best way to address it as a party; I don’t believe in open criticisms, I don’t believe in we standing on rooftop and criticising one another,” the former broadcaster emphasised.

He noted “for every one of us, what we should be doing is to use the party’s structures, see ourselves as members of the same family and try and correct one another.”
