The former deputy Education Minister confirmed to Starrfm.com.gh that he has enough evidence to back his claims if the presidency denies his allegations.
According to Brigadier-General Nunoo Mensah, he ditched the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) with Rawlings’ unflinching blessing.
“The late President Rawlings encouraged me to leave the NDC and join GUM,” the retired Brigadier-General revealed on e.TV’s Ghana’s Fact Sheet Show.
Brigadier-General Nunoo Mensah added that “Rawlings himself felt he risked his life for the country and still achieved nothing.”
