- Former President Mahama has paid a courtesy call on Former President Rawlings
- Various issues were discussed in the course of the meeting between the former presidents
- Rawlings took the opportunity to speak on verbal attacks by his former spokesman, Kofi Adams, on an aspiring flagbearer, Alban Bagbin
Former President Rawlings has defended the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, with regard to accusations levelled against him by Kofi Adams, the National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to a report by 3news.com, Rawlings stated that accusations leveled against Bagbin by Kofi Adams are full of errors.
Rawlings made the remark during a courtesy call on him by Former President Mahama.
According to Rawlings, the utterances by his former spokesperson, Kofi Adams, to the effect that Mr. Alban Bagbin who is also the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, was out to destroy the party, is inaccurate.
He posited that the destruction of the party begun especially when the party unduly interfered in the last competitive presidential primary elections in Sunyani.
This, he said, was done by the systemic monetization of the process and the postponement of the congress on two occasions ostensibly to favour one candidate over the others.
Rawlings cautioned against party members issuing statements preventing other presidential aspirants from campaigning in certain locations as happened in the Ashanti Region recently.
The meeting was attended by some past senior appointees of the party including former chiefs of staff Julius Debrah and Prosper Bani, former Minister of Health, Alex Segbefia, Joyce Bawa, special aide to former President Mahama.
Also in attendance were Ambassador Dan Abodakpi, Edward Bawa, Samson Ahi, Dr Donald Agumenu and Dr Kwesi Djokoto.
