Former President Jerry John Rawlings has slammed former Presidents John Kufuor, John Atta Mills and John Mahama for presiding over corrupt governments.
According to Mr. Rawlings, the three former leaders failed to fight corruption, allowing it to bring disgrace to their various political parties.
“I remember when I left office, it (corruption) was prevalent during Kufuor’s tenure, during Mills’ tenure it continued and Mahama did same. I remember when Kufuor was leaving he did some bad things,” the former military ruler said in an address at the 80th Ada Asafotufiami Festival on Saturday.
Mr. Rawlings added that his unflinching stance against corruption had created the false impression among some NDC faithful that he hates the party.
“When I talk, they say I don’t like NDC, no! I don’t like stealing, I don’t like disgrace so if NDC does good, I will praise them if they are bad I will say it as well.
“If NPP does well, I will praise them, if they do bad I will hit them on their back”.
