“Former President JJ Rawlings recently rejected government's offer of a temporary

mansion for him at the plush Trasacco Valley Estates, his aide Kofi Adams has

exclusively told Citi News… that the former president rejected the temporary home

offered him by the government because, in his view, it was incompatible with the NDC

founder’s moderate lifestyle” Ghanaweb, October 13, 2011)
