Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and a former President of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings says he gets hurt when the media give negative reports about him.

“When the media reports issues about me, it hurts me people are not able to analyze their headlines and content of their stories before they judge,” Mr. Rawlings stated.

The former President was addressing party supporters at the Arts Centre in Accra during a town hall meeting being organised by Cadres and NDC Activists. The former NHIA Boss Sylvester Mensah, former Defense Minister Dr. Kumbour, former Eastern Regional Minister Antwi Boasiako Sekyere and other Party Big shots attended the event.

Former President Rawlings has come under attack by his own party for openly castigating the party while it was in power. The relations between the founder and some leading members seem to have been cold overtime.

Mr. Rawlings said he hated evil and injustice so when people hate me because I speak my mind, I am the least bothered.

He described the Special Prosecutor who was a former Attorney General in an NDC government Martin Alamisi Kaiser Burns Amidu as an asset who could have been used by the John Dramani Mahama government to its advantage whiles in office.

“Why should the NDC and the NPP be angry over a simple appointment?” he quizzed.

He hinted that his book which contains a lot of secrets will be out soon.
