FONKAR Bounces Back; launches ‘Operation Vote Mahama Out!’

The Friends of Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings (FONKAR) group has resurfaced with a new campaign slogan – ‘Operation Vote Mahama Out!’

Part of the group’s intention is to embark on a vigorous campaign to ensure that President Mahama and his governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) are voted out of power come November 7 when the country goes to the polls.

At an event to re-launch the group in Accra yesterday, National Coordinator of the rejuvenated FONKAR, Joseph Bediako, gave the assurance that he and his colleagues would do whatever it takes for Ghanaians to vote against Mahama with a promise to march the NDC and its agents boot for boot.

“If they dare to insult any of the opposition leaders – Nana Akufo-Addo, Paa Kwesi Nduom, Edward Mahama, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings and co – we will reply them…we are going to stick to the truth, nobody can buy our conscience,” he said.

He talked about unbridled corruption in the NDC administration aside the increasing rate of unemployment in the country, which has rendered most of Ghana’s youth jobless, with a promise that “sooner or later most of his (Mahama’s) appointees will be exposed.”

The group, which has been registered as a non-governmental organization (NGO) with the Registrar General’s Department (RGD), has since declared an unflinching support for ideals of Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, vowing to defend her works both locally and internationally.

Mrs Rawlings was overwhelmed with the organization and representation from all the regions and the decision to register the group, pledging her commitment to assist the members at all times for the confidence reposed in her.

“Let us make FONKAR into something positive that will change the lives of people, something that will influence the lives of people in a positive way and something that will also elevate yourselves into a higher level than where you are today,” she told the new executives.
