Editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Kweku Baako has urged former president Jerry John Rawlings to assess his views carefully before expressing them publicly.
His comments came in the wake of Mr. Rawlings’ claims that the NDC would have been in opposition if it had presented the late Prof. Atta Mills as its presidential candidate in the 2012 elections. His comment which seemed to have described Prof. Atta Mills’ death as a good omen for NDC has received backlash from a couple of political commentators.
“Why deny him [Mahama] his due? Many of us live in a state of self-denial because we seem to have an aversion for unpleasant situations. It is important for us to develop a historical memory of events. I said it over and over, NDC would have lost terribly had God not called the Prof”, a portion of Mr. Rawlings’ statement said.
Speaking on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, Mr. Baako stated that there is no justification for the former president to make such an insensitive statement. According to him, Mr. Rawlings needs a self-introspection before he speaks.
“He must go under a process of sober reflection and realise that he can communicate what he wants to say without the way he goes about it. He must heal himself.
“Rawlings can say whatever he wants to say without drawing any sensitive cords into the picture. He does not know how to communicate properly and in so doing he hurts emotions”.
