Rawlings explains why he was attacking Prof Mills

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has explained reasons behind several verbal attacks  he launched at late Professor Atta-Mills when he (Mills) was a President.

Former President Rawlings was critical of President Mills’ administration, there is no denying that, in usual manner, this was done openly and with the best of intentions.

Reacting to contents of a book titled ‘Working with Rawlings’, authored by Professor Kwamena Ahwoi, Mr Rawlings said, he had meetings with President Mills offering counsel and suggestions strictly to the good of Mills’ presidency and that of his government.

A press statement issued by his Communication Diretorate said Rawlings has always remained consistent in his open and bona fides criticisms of President Mills’ administration which, to date, are still outstanding matters.

The statement further said ”these include:

  1. The failure of the Mills Government to investigate the assassination of the Yaa-Naa and forty (40) of his elders;
  2. President Mills’ inability to look into the death of Alhaji Issa Mobilla, the late Northern Regional Chairman of the CPP;
  3. The failure of the Mills Government to investigate and prosecute genuine fraudulent activities within President Kufuor’s administration; and
  4. The lack of dedication to the Party ideals of probity and accountability, as well as the monetization of the NDC internal electoral processes.”
