The General Secretary for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has defended Professor Kwamena Ahwoi memoir about his working relationship with former president Rawlings.
Critics have slammed the former Local Government minister for releasing the book at the time the NDC are gearing up for the 2020 elections.
Many others, including former Keta MP, Dan Abodakpi feels the book which is titled “Working with Rawlings” is a deliberate attempt to destroy the legacy of Rawlings.
However, Asiedu Nketia thinks otherwise. According to the man affectionately called General Mosquito, the book is a chronicle of Ahwoi’s decades of working experience with President Rawlings and he finds nothing wrong with it.
“I don’t see how what somebody has written as his personal account and experience with the founder of our party would generate this amount of controversy and even if that controversy is raging, I don’t see how it comes to affect our elections,” he said on Accra-based Citi TV.
“So they are free to do what they choose to do outside the party’s main strategy for elections. I don’t want to be the policeman in the affairs of everybody within the party because I cannot be that policeman.
“Who said people don’t attack each other in all parties? If it is about issues relating to the party, fine but if it is about personal issues, I don’t see how it comes to affect our campaign at all.”
