Former president Jerry John Rawlings has denied media reports that he has become silent on the many ills in Ghana because of the support government gives to his charity works.
In a statement issued by the office of Rawlings and signed by his Secretary, Kobina Andoh Amoakwa, he said it is unfortunate and distasteful, the inference that owing to the support of the Chief of Staff’s office, the former President has remained silent on the many ills in the Ghanaian society.
It said Rawlings' charitable gestures have received the support of past government with the exception of former president Kufuor.
The statement described former president Rawlings as someone who "spoke his mind and that it was inappropriate, incorrect and inaccurate to make such unfounded conclusions."
