The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, has described as ‘interesting’ the fact that President Akufo Addo invited former Presidents Jerry John Rawlings and John Mahama to have talks when they were described as incompetent by the ruling government.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, last week Tuesday, met with Ghana’s former presidents – Jerry John Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama at the Flagstaff House.
The purpose of the meeting, according to the Presidency, was to seek the views of the former presidents on “some governance-enhancing measures Akufo-Addo’s administration intends to take.”
Speaking during a panel of discussion on Radio Gold Saturday’s edition of ‘Alhaji and Alhaji’, Kwesi Pratt wondered what President Akufo Addo was looking for from the former Presidents Rawlings and Mahama after his government had described them as incompetence.
“it is interesting that former president John Dramani Mahama and Jerry John Rawlings are being invited to sit around a table to discuss with an NPP government the state of our national economy; that’s an interesting thing. If you go into the records, you will find that former President Rawlings was accused of gross incompetence in the management of the national economy; former President Mahama was also accused of gross incompetence of the management of the national economy and so this meeting what was it all about? Was it to tap into the incompetence of former Presidents Jerry John Rawlings and John Mahama; I find it very very strange” he said.
