Barely a week after casting aspersions on the former presidents of Ghana - John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama -founder of the NDC, Jerry Rawlings has apologized for his utterances.
In an official press statement from the office of Jerry Rawlings, head of communications, Kobina Amoakoa revealed that " the former president has taken due note of the concerns raised over certain publications arising out of a meeting he held with a delegation of chiefs and elders from Mepe in the Volta Region".

Based on these concerns, "the former president apologizes to former presidents John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama for" the choice of words" saying the words used were "inappropriate" hence withdrawing them.
It all happened when the founder of the NDC stated that he will not mind spending eternity in hell than to see Mahama and Kufuor share a place with him in Heaven.
In an address to members of the party in the Volta Region, Jerry Rawlings argued that both former presidents have failed to develop Ghana despite their campaign promised to do so.
“I know with my integrity when I die, I will go to heaven but when I see these corrupt leaders, I will ask permission from God and flog them. If they don’t leave heaven for me, I will go and leave the heavens and join Satan in hell because I cannot stay in the same place with them,” Jerry Rawlings stated.
Rawlings made these statements when the chiefs and people of Mepe in the North Tongu Constituency in the Volta Region paid a courtesy call on him to officially invite him to the final funeral rites of Mamaga Awusi Sreku II, queen of the Mepe Traditional Area.
In fact, the words of Jerry Rawlings come as no surprise to followers of Ghanaian politics. Founder of the NDC has held massive rallies in the past especially against former president John Kufuor.
