The Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu has described ex-President John Rawlings as Ghana’s most corrupt President.
“It is Rawlings who brought indiscipline into this country, corruption in this country; people chop [embezzled] government money because of Rawlings. He is the most corrupt man,” said Bugri Naabu.
He is therefore, asking Ghanaians to disregard the former President’s claims that the Kufuor administration was the most corrupt.
Ex- President Rawlings has on numerous platforms accused his successor, John Kufuor of presiding over corruption in Ghana. He has also claimed Ghana reached its highest point of corruption during the era of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
Summing it all up, Ex-President Rawlings says his successor monopolized corruption during his two-term reign.
Speaking to Citi News, Bugri Naabu chastised Mr Rawlings for constantly spewing lies about the NPP. He opined that anytime President Rawlings is not in favour of actions taken by his opponents, “he will call you a bad man.”
The NPP stalwart remarked that because Ghana is a peaceful country, Mr Rawlings “is going about enjoying, creating trouble and he thinks he is somebody.”
He expressed surprise at Mr Rawlings’ frequent negative comments about Mr. Kufuor who, according to Bugri Naabu, brought about immense development to Ghana.
Daniel Bugri Naabu however, said he finds solace in the fact that Ghanaians know the truth because “they know what Kufuor came and did, they know the 11 years revolution and what he [Rawlings] did and they know the eight years in democracy and what he did.”
“There is nothing Rawlings can say that Ghanaians will believe him. I don’t think it is proper for us to listen to Rawlings; he doesn’t know what he is talking about,” he added.
