- Managing Director of Plant Oil Powered wants investigations into the death of Jerry Rawlings
- The American citizen alleges that the former president was murdered by CIA operatives
- According to him, claims that he died of the Coronavirus are untrue
An American businessman and Managing Director of Plant Oil Powered (POP) Diesel, Claude Convisser, has petitioned the US Congress to investigate the activities of both the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)in Ghana.
US businessman in Ghana petitions US Congress to investigate Rawlings' death, and plans to instigate terrorist attacks and destabilize the country.
The petition also called on the US Congress to investigate what the petitioner called "a systematic and regular practice of bribe - demanding in President Akufo Addo's Flagstaff House".
The American investor who has lived in Ghana for seven years now, said the CIA meddled in the 2020 elections in favour of the NPP and subsequently murdered the former President, J.J Rawlings in order to quash any opposition against the US Ghana Defense Treaty, which the former President had criticized as a surrender of the country's sovereignty.
"On Wednesday, November 11, 2020, I conducted a news briefing for the Ghanaian African media and press in Tamale, the biggest city in that country's North. I revealed that on December 26, 2017, the Vice Chairman of the NPP for the Northern Region, a gentleman by the name of Alhaji Sunday, took me to the Flagstaff House, the Ghanaian President's Office".
"The President's Deputy Chief of Staff Asensu, who like many of the officials at the summit of the Ghanaian Government, is a family relative of the President, demanded a $20,000 bribe for any favor from the Government, including meeting with President."
"The next morning, November 12, before any of the twelve news outlets had a chance to publish their stories, former President and staunch American ally Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings died", the US citizen stated in the petition.
According to Convisser, following the dearth of news about the cause of former President Rawlings's death, and his wife Nana Konadu Agyepong Rawlings's informing President Akuffo Addo on television that his passing was completely unexpected, the Ghanaian Government announced that he died of COVID - 19 which later appeared to be a cover up.
"He did not die of COVID 19. The CIA, the DIA, or one of their affiliate agencies or contractors murdered him, to prevent news outlets from carrying my disclosure of systematic corruption in the Flagstaff House that might have harmed the re - election chances of the CIA's favoured NPP and President Akuffo Addo in the December 7.
"Former President Rawlings' sudden death was the only event in Ghana of sufficient magnitude that would have ,and did, immediately eliminate news coverage of all other domestic topics for enough days to quash my own November 11 news disclosure. Indeed, it is possible that President Akuffo Addo owes his narrow - re election in the December 7 poll by a margin of 51 percent to 47 percent for former President Mahama to the CIA's suppression of any controversy induced by former President Rawlings's death which they caused'.
The US businessman also accused the CIA of having taken a "misguided approach towards agricultural development in northern Ghana by seeking to subvert cultivation of the jatropha tree for its inedible fruit seed oil as a biofuel, which his company, according to him, was the first in 2013 to prove to the satisfaction of the US Environmental Protection Agency.
He concluded the petition by requesting a "requisite investigations, order remedial action, and make the necessary apology to former President Rawlings's wife and family, and the Ghanaian people.
