Ernest Owusu Bempah, Deputy Communications Director of the National Democratic Party, says the late President Mills will go into the historical books of Ghana as the ‘worst’ leader after his successor, President John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, the late President did not leave a better legacy behind because he was a ‘hypocrite’ and vindictive.
Giving an account about the life of the late President, Ernest Owusu Bempah described him as a good educationalist but a leader who could not forgive the wrongs of his critics.
“I respect him for being a good teacher. I respect him for being an educationist. I respect him for being a scholar but when it comes to his normal life, for me, I will forever say it and say it again and again that Professor Mills was the most vindictive person I have ever come across in my life,” he asserted.
He also accused the former Communications Director under the leadership of late President Mills, Koku Anyidoho, of describing him as a “diaper-wearing infant”, an insult that, to him, President Mills did not find time to address, hence charting a new course in the country’s politics.
In respect of this, he labeled the late President as “the greatest hypocrite in the annals of Ghanaian politics……He will go down in history as the worst leader apart from John Mahama.”
