Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Jerry John Rawlings says the likes of Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi are seeking to take control of the party.
Mr Ahwoi played a vital role during the tenure of Rawlings , he was a Minister and is a leading member of the NDC.
He has made some some claims against the former President in his recent book titled, “Working With Rawlings.”
In an interview on Citi TV over the weekend he made some revelations including accusing Rawlings of being the reason why late Prof. John Atta Mills nearly resigned as President.
Rawlings however in a statement has rubbish this claim and many others and accused Mr Ahwoi of having a ‘callous agenda’ to control the NDC.
He vowed to deal with Kwamena Ahwoi and others soon.
Below is a statement from Rawlings
OTUMFUO DESERVES COMMENDATION
I want to take the opportunity to congratulate the Asantehene for the steps he has taken, to seriously protect the environment and also to thank him for tampering justice with mercy on Nana Bantamahene.
We each have to learn to take a cue from the Asantehene and be bold and audacious in our defence of the environment, especially from thieves and crooks, who with impunity can collect parcels of land anywhere, anyhow and do as they wish against the public good and the sanctity of nature.
Let me also express my gratitude to Togbe Afede XIV, President of the National House of Chiefs for taking the initiative to lead a delegation of the Volta Region House of Chiefs to the border areas in the region to ascertain things for themselves. Some of the unsightly things we see on the Internet do not speak well of us locally and internationally.
Much as I find it tiring and tedious to be engaging in self-defence when I have given my all, all these years, I will soon deal with the callous agenda of bile by the likes of Kwamena Ahwoi, who are desperately seeking control of the NDC party. The NDC could, should and has survived on the authority of the word but if care is not taken, it will collapse and drown as has been happening, on the word of those in authority.
