Former president JJ Rawlings has formally responded to allegations against him in Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi’s book titled – ‘Working with Rawlings’.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The book has dominated political discussions within the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), in particular, and media discourse in general. In a two-part critique, the special prosecutor, Martin Amidu, who was also mentioned in the book described it as full of “factual errors.”
In his first official response, Mr. Rawlings through his communication directorate said Ahwoi’s book has a hidden agenda to “sully” his image and that of his wife Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings.
“This book is quite, unfortunately, riddled with countless fabrications and assumptions ascribed to said individuals who were thought to have more honour,” the statement said.
“This book appears to have no aim of serving history with facts. It reads as an opportunistic and calculated attempt to ridicule President Rawlings and former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, using the personality of the late President John Atta Mills as the bait.”

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghanaians on social media have waded into the President Nana Akufo-Addo and John Dramani Mahama debate conversation.
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has invited the incumbent President and the NPP to a debate on infrastructure projects undertaken in Ghana by the two political regimes.
Mahama says the comparison of their track records as presidents must be settled with a debate.
