Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Koku Anyidoho, says it’s okay for former President Rawlings to conduct politics on a holy day on the Christian calendar, despite saying the same thing was wrong a few weeks ago.
Anyidoho, if you’ll recall, berated Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia after a speech for conducting politics on Easter Monday.
“Dr Bawumia has disturbed Christians in solemnly observing the day after Jesus Christ’s resurrection as such.” Anyidoho solemnly said at the time.
However, keeping in line with the hypocrisy of Ghanaian politicians, Anyidoho gave his okay to former President Rawlings after he basically did the same thing.
The anniversary of this year’s June 4th fell on a Sunday, which also turned out to be Pentecost Day – the day when the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles and a gathered multitude.
Rawlings gave a June 4th speech in Wa, which of course, covered numerous political topics.
When asked about it, Anyidoho said it was nothing since Sunday was not a holiday.
“Pentecost Sunday is very critical on the calendar for Christians but it is not a statutory Christian holiday. There is nothing wrong for the former president to do politics on Sunday,” he said.
