Kufuor accepts Rawlings’ apology, clears his name
Former President J.A Kufuor has accepted ex President Rawlings’ apology after he asked the former to forgive him for insulting him.
Mr Rawlings on Monday apologised to his colleague former leaders John Agyekum Kufuor and John Mahama over the use of “inappropriate” words against them.
He at a meeting with chiefs and elders from Mepe in the Volta Region last week used derogatory words against the two former presidents.
Rawlings, who has been critical of the duo, described former President Kufuor as ‘evil’ and Mahama as a ‘rogue’ who destroyed the country.
He said: “I know with my integrity when I die, I will go to heaven but when I see these corrupt leaders, I will ask permission from God and flog them.
“If they don’t leave heaven for me, I will go and leave the heavens and join Satan in hell because I cannot stay in the same place with them,” Mr Rawlings stated.
Barely a week after spewing those comments, Mr. Rawlings has issued a statement to withdraw his choice of words saying he deems the words inappropriate.
Ex President Kufuor in a statement accepted the apology and went ahead to clear his name of allegations leveled against him by his predecessor.
