The editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper is scandalised about revelations in Prof Kwamena Ahwoi’s book: ‘Working with Rawlings.’
Abdul Malik Kweku Baako said most of the revelations made, especially about late President John Evans Atta Mills are “unfair.”
“The lasting effect is that all the promises he made to fight corruption when he comes to power were not fulfiled and that is an attack on his memory. And yet it is seen as a light thing in a book of this nature by a great mind like Mr Ahwoi and released at this time.
“He’s not here. Dead men don’t talk, can’t defend themselves. So, he’s not here even to make an input… It’s an attack on the man’s memory and his integrity,” he said on Accra-based Peace FM.
The veteran journalist also added that claims by Prof. Ahwoi that the late Mills was vilified by former President Jerry Rawlings for not prosecuting appointees in the erstwhile Kufuor administration are false.
”There are elements of the book that must be subjected to scrutiny and it worries me. It has also been alleged that Professor Mills refused or failed to allow the prosecution of New Patriotic Party officials.
“That’s a fallacy. That cannot be true but they all appear to believe it and they’re articulating it,” he stressed.
