JJ Rawlings throws subtle jab at the Ahwoi brothers

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has launched a strong campaign against a plan by the Ahwoi brothers- Ato, Kwamena and Kwesi- to make one of them, Kwesi, a running mate to John Mahama in 2020.

The former President made his intention in a tweet on Monday afternoon.

Per a report by Mynewsgh.com sighted by YEN.com.gh, the former President’s tweet was a reaction to the decision by former President John Dramani Mahama to appoint Kwesi Ahwoi as running mate ahead of election 2020 if he wins the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearership race.

Meanwhile it is believed Rawlings put out the tweet to expose the lies of Mahama who is allegedly going round promising the number two position in exchange for their support for his candidature, while deep insiders know he has “sold that to the Ahwois already."

To drive a wedge in the agenda, Rawlings put out the tweet to stop the-Support-me-and-I-will-make-you-number-two mantra.

Isn’t the Presidency too busy a place for hopefuls/running mates who spend a little too much time grooming their moustache and dyeing their hair?” Rawlings tweeted.

So far, all the Ahwoi brothers-Ato Ahwoi, Kwamena Ahwoi and Kwesi Ahwoi are busily campaigning for Mahama to be reelected as flagbearer of NDC.

Ato and Kwamena used to be staunch allies of Mr Rawlings and played major roles in then PNDC government in 1980’s as well as the two constitutional terms led by President Rawlings in 1992 and 1996 respectively.

One of the Ahwoi brothers, Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi shot a widely circulated video endorsing the candidature of former President John Dramani Mahama as NDC’s flagbearer for election 2020.

According to him, Mr. Mahama is experienced and “knows how to handle the stresses of leadership” making him the best person to lead the party in the next general election.

Prof. Ahwoi also described Mr. Dramani Mahama as someone who is composed and still remains true to the values of the NDC.

He explained further that having worked with Mr. Mahama, he is confident his candidature will ensure victory for the NDC.

To me, John Dramani Mahama is the best man for the job, we need a steady and experienced hand, someone who can remain composed under the pressure of the campaign race and still remain true to the values of our great NDC,” he said.

"JM has been there, he knows what it’s about and how to handle the stresses of leadership. I have worked with him before. I was Minister when he was a deputy Minister, I watched him perform as President. To win 2020, I go for JM,” he concluded.
