Ghana: Konadu Has Not Endorsed Nana Addo

The beleaguered flagbearer of the National Democratic Party, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings says she will not endorse any candidate ahead of tomorrow's elections.

Speaking through Ernest Owusu Bempah, Deputy Director of Communications for the NDP in an interview with Accra-based radio station, Citi FM, she said she would prefer to leave the decision of whom to vote for to Ghanaians to make.

According to Owusu-Bempah, though Nana Konadu yearns for a change in the management of the country, she trusts in the judgment of Ghanaians to make that happen.

She is convinced however, that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has mismanaged the country and does not deserve another chance.

Bempah admitted that Nana Konadu has declared support for the free Senior High School education promise of the opposition New Patriotic Party but said it is not an automatic endorsement of the flagbearer - Nana Akufo-Addo.

Owusu Bempah, who was clarifying issues on what has emerged as an inaccurate comment by Nana Akufo-Addo during the NPP's final campaign rally at the Efua Sutherland Children's Park in Accra on Wednesday.

Nana Addo, while addressing party supporters at the rally had indicated that the disqualified NDP leader had endorsed his candidature and asked her supporters nationwide to vote for him in Friday's Presidential election.

His office has since issued an apology for the misinformation.
