Former President Jerry John Rawlings has stated that Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings never at a meeting with late Professor Mills requested for the vice presidential slot.
The claim in Professor Kwamena Ahwoi book titled ‘Working with Rawlings’, he said, is an outright fabrication.
“Nana Konadu never requested, indicated or discussed with any individual an intention or desire to be the running-mate to Vice-President Mills,” he said in statement issued by his Communication Directorate.
Mr. Rawlings said the book is quite unfortunately, riddled with countless fabrications and assumptions ascribed to said individuals who were thought to have more honour.
He said he had a good relationship with former President Mill during the latter’s tenure, he interacted several times via telephone and met a few times either at the Ridge residence or the Castle, Osu and at all times they treated each other with utmost respect.
“These meetings were at the behest of President Mills, so it is difficult to reconcile the so-called bitterness that Ahwoi portrays in his book to the reality of the relationship between Rawlings and Mills.
”A number of personalities that the author refers to and others, have written publicly to disassociate themselves from the comments in the book. A clear indication of the credibility or lack thereof of its contents,” the statement said.
