Former President Jerry John Rawlings has called for a continental policy and guidelines that will direct heads of state to make effective decisions.

This has become necessary due to what Mr. Rawlings described as bad influence by the western powers.

He took issue with comments made by French President Francois Hollande on the appointment of President Robert Mugabe as Head of AU.

“Somebody like Mugabe has a history to the African continent and they don’t know.”

Mr. Rawlings said the audacity from the West should not be tolerated anymore.

The former President was speaking during a call on him by former Mozambican President, Joachim Chissano at his residence in Accra.

On the Nigerian elections, Former President Rawlings said, he hopes General Buhari will take the bull by the horn and face the corruption canker in his country with all seriousness.

Former Mozambican President Joachim Chissano agreed with Mr. Rawlings. He said an organisation made up of former heads of state is critical since it will help shape and address issues that affect the continent.

Mr. Chissano was in Ghana as Special guest speaker of the annual UDS governance lectures.
