Friends of the Rawlings’ believe the maverick politician, Kennedy Agyapong is scared he is a possible target of the Independent Special Prosecutor, Martin A.B.K Amidu hence his latest attacks on him as well as his referee Mr. Rawlings.
Mr Amidu during his vetting on Tuesday hailed the former President for being instrumental in curtailing corrupt practices in the country but the Assin Central lawmaker on the contrary, claimed it was rather under Rawlings corruption increased in the country.
Ghana’s fate today, he is part of it, the atrocities they committed together, what is Amidu talking about? Me I don’t fear anybody, it is only God I fear. I fear nothing, I fear no one. Rawlings, the corruption today is his breed”, he declared.
But a statement issued by Friends of the Rawlings and signed by its convener, Ibrahim Hardi maintained that Mr Rawlings during his tenure in office did much to curb corruption.
He wondered why Mr Agyapong will be running amok following Martin Amidu’s appointment if he has nothing to hide explaining that it is only persons perceived to be corrupt and guilty of such practices who will be running away from such a figure.
“We think that the news of Martin Amidu as Special Prosecutor left Kennedy Agyapong feeling shaky and uncomfortable, scared that he may be chased by Martin Amidu in the near future. Kennedy Agyapong’s attack on former President Jerry John Rawlings shows that he has some skeletons under his bed hence the unprovoked venom at President Rawlings”, the statement said.

Statement By Friends of the Rawlingses: Kennedy Agyapong’s Unprovoked Attack On Rawlings
The just ended vetting process in which the Special Prosecutor designate, Martin Alamisi Amidu proudly touted Excellency Jerry Rawlings as a man of integrity and a mentor whom he draws wisdom and strength from and revealed that his mentor was able to fight corruption to the barest minimum, has not gone down well with an irritated Kennedy Agyapong.
Based on this, the lippy Kennedy Agyapong is all over the place trying hard to soil the reputation of former President Jerry Rawlings describing him as a breeder of corrupt people.
We think that the news of Martin Amidu as Special Prosecutor left Kennedy Agyapong feeling shaky and uncomfortable, scared that he may be chased by Martin Amidu in the near future. Kennedy Agyapong’s attack on former President Jerry John Rawlings shows that he has some skeletons under his bed hence the unprovoked venom at President Rawlings.
We have taken due note of Kennedy Agyapong trotting from radio station to station since Martin Amidu was nominated by the President as Special Prosecutor. He’s nervous as he keeps warning NPP that Martin Amidu will come after them. It’s only a corrupt and a guilty minded person who will question Amidu’s nomination.
We believe that what Martin Amidu said about HE Jerry John Rawlings during the vetting session is true and we stand by him. We are assuring Kennedy Agyapong that he will be met in equal term and measure should he attack our beloved founder.
Long Live the Revolution, Long Live NDC.
Long Live former President Jerry Rawlings!
Ibrahim Hardi, Convener/Spokesperson
