Dr. Sekou Nkrumah, the youngest son of the former President of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has waded into the disqualification of NDP flagbearer Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings saying “something must be terribly wrong with the former First Lady”.

Dr. Nkrumah however sympathized with Mrs. Rawlings and stated his disappointment over the former First lady’s failure to file her nomination to contest the December elections.

According to him, he wonders why Nana Konadu could not supervise the completion of the forms on time to be able to meet the deadline.

“It looks now that something is terribly wrong with her and it is either she or President Rawlings is out of touch, something I suspected a long time ago”.

Speaking on Radio XYZ’s current affairs program the Analyst, Dr. Nkrumah said the former first lady has a lot to do to convince Ghanaians that she is still politically viable.

“My point here is that it is actually not good for her political future” Sekou Nkrumah said adding “even the GCPP who will not even get 0.5 percent met the criteria of the EC”.

Meanwhile, Dr. Sekou Nkrumah’s co-panellist, Mr. Kwame Gyantuah from the CPP asserts that the former First lady is finished politically and would find it difficult to revive her political career again.

“I would say to her, she and her husband have been in Ghanaian politics for a very long time and it is time to hang the gloves”.

“It is not only an embarrassment to herself but an embarrassment to her husband [John Rawlings]”.
