The founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings, has said former President John Mahama did not listen to his admonishment to prosecute corrupt officials in the administration of former President John Agyekum Kufuor when the party was in power.
He said, "Mahama tactically refused to prosecute ministers of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government for his own good."
According to him, "After winning power, the Mills/Mahama government did not listen to my admonishment to prosecute corrupt officials in the Kufuor administration even though there was proof
"I pressurized them to crack the whip on the corrupt officials but they refused. Mills would always say he was chosen by God just to rebut my advice to crack the whip. Then it came to Mahama who also left it like that so that he too could go and take refuge there when he had exhausted his time in political office."
