A member of the communications team for the National Democratic Congress Gabriella Tetteh has opined that the late Jerry John Rawlings was compromised by his friendship with President Akufo Addo and as such could not criticize the president on alleged corruption charges.
Speaking at Metro Tv on the Good morning Ghana show monitored by politicogh, Gabriella Tetteh pointed out the good legacies of the Former President and the successful transition into the fourth republic under his watch.
He did the best that he could under the circumstances that he inherited, he led us into the democratic regime, in 1990 he started the process of having Ghana go into the constitutional rule and he did not go back.
However, Gabriella expressed her disappointment in the late Flt. Lt. John Rawlings for failing to criticize the Nana Addo government despite the numerous corruption allegations leveled against the administration.
What hurts me about Rawlings is that, in his last years, he criticized President Kuffour, President Mills, and President John Mahama, but he was quiet on President Akuffo Addo, and I believe that it was his friendship with Akuffo Addo that compromised him
She added that although some believe that the Ex-president was going to slam President Akuffo during Election time ‘it is too late now’.
