Ghana’s former President John Jerry Rawlings has stated that he does not in any way miss his onetime bosom friend and former President John Evans Atta Mills.
The late President, who fell out with his former boss, died in July 2012 when Ghana was preparing for parliamentary and presidential elections.
He was replaced by his Vice, John Mahama, who led the NDC into victory in the general elections.
Speaking to GHOne’s Nana Aba Anamoah in an exclusive interview, the former military ruler said Mills promised to reward people who insulted and fabricated things about him (Rawlings) with jobs.
“No, I don’t miss him at all and I would take off my glasses for you to see my face…when I look at him [Mills] and look at this John [Mahama] there have a few commonalities but this John [Mahama] did not line up people on the promise of a job when you insult and fabricate things against me, wife and my family as Mills did. This one has not done that but that is not to say that I don’t think that he is also not going astray,” former President Rawlings said.
MY WHAT I KNOW.
Egya Atta-Mills might not be here today, but the facts and what a lot of folks know shall speak for itself.
When the Chiefs of Southern Volta went to Rawlings, what he said was the problem between him and the late Mills was that Mills refused to give appointments to the people that he Rawlings chose.
Rawlings further stated that he no longer has access to the ears of Mills and for that matter he no longer has his directives implemented.
We the Chiefs then went to Mills to find out the truth on the insistence of Rawlings. Mills said his only fault was that his wife was said to have disrespected Nana Konadu at Ada at a function Nana Konadu asked her security to refuse usage of the red carpet by the Second Lady Naadu Mills, and that he Mills only gave appointments to only nine of the twenty-one man list Rawlings brought.
No mention was made of what Rawlings has put out today. It was Rawlings who was insulting Mills, Kofi Awoonor, Kojo Tsikata, Obed Asamoah, Mahama Iddrissu, P.V. Obeng and saying things that undermined the faith of Mahama Iddrissu.
Posterity will judge this evil man, and should we be surprised at Rawlings not missing a man he killed by his constant insults when he and Kofi Adams, Spio Garbrah knew the health of the President suffers from those actions of theirs?
No, we wont.
