Rawlings sneaks to Dagbon

Ex-president Rawlings

Ex-president Rawlings has reiterated the need for the Mills-led administration to seek justice for alleged human rights abuses under the Kufuor administration.

According to him, it was only justice that would shore up the chances of the ruling government retaining power in the upcoming 2012 elections.

He was interacting with some chiefs in the Northern Region, and had earlier visited victims of the flood disaster in the region.

Northern Regional correspondent Mahama Shaibu, who was present at the gathering, said the ex-family hinted they might not campaign for the party in 2012, if President Mills failed to administer justice to the killers of Ya-Na Yakubu Andani, and the Convention People’s Party Chairman, Alhaji Issa Mobila.

Mr. Rawlings accused the Kufuor administration of conducting shoddy investigations to cover-up killings that occurred during his tenure.

The ex-president also stated emphatically that neither he nor his wife had any interest in Mills’ presidency, and that his call for justice was only to ensure that the perpetrators of those heinous crimes are brought to book.

The former president also paid a courtesy call on the family of the NDC Regional Chairman, Alhaji Sumani Zakari, who passed away last week, after a protracted illness.

He was full of praise for the deceased, who he said, was a man full of courage, and said the party must be able to elect a successor who is equally as courageous as Sumani Zakari. Credit: myjoyonline
