Controversial businesswoman Lady Tamara has made some passionate statements about the former President Jerrry Rawlings, and her affection for him.
Speaking in an interview on 3FM, the Nkosuohemaa for the Akuapem Guan area spoke of her relationship with the former president and the supposed rumors that she had an affair with him.
"He is the one who made most Ghanaians abroad come home. Most of the Ghanaians who came home to establish some sort of business did so because of him. But now most of us want to go back because of the current hardships," she said.
She added it was her greatest wish to be with him, stating, "I love him so much; he made me what I am today. He advised most of us to come home and invest, we did and saw results. I was so in love with him I would have loved to date and even marry him."
When asked if the former first lady Nana Konadu Rawlings ever warned off over her friendship with former President Rawlings, she replied vehemently, "No! She never did; but that would mean she would have had to warn all the market women in Accra who admired and equally loved the former President and called him ‘Rolex’, ‘Rolex’ because they couldn’t even mention his name Rawlings properly (because of their level of education). She would also have the uphill task of warning all the boys at Kawukude for their admiration and obsession for the man. Rawlings is simply adorable. Till today I still love him and no one can stop me from loving him”, she reaffirmed.
