Former President Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings has said if going to Heaven means sharing the place with former President John Mahama and John Kufuor, then he is better off and happy going to hell.
The former President launched these unprovoked verbal attacks on the two Former Presidents who ruled the country after him when he received a delegation from the Volta Region.
According to the Former military ruler, former President Kufuor is ‘evil’ while former President Mahama, a ‘rogue’; and they both destroyed the country, adding that he will gladly join Satan in hell should they (Mahama and Kufuor) make heaven.
Mr Rawlings made these statements when the chiefs and people of Mepe in the North Tongu Constituency in the Volta Region paid a courtesy call on him to officially invite him to the final funeral rites of Mamaga Awusi Sreku II, queen of the Mepe Traditional Area.
“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.
He said former President Kufuor came to sell some Ghanaian companies to foreigners and awarded himself with the Grand Order of The Star and Eagles of Ghana.
Mr Rawlings said former President Kufuor, during his time, also tried to sideline Ewes in the military, adding that it came to a time when the service was looking for senior officers and was enlisting 40 in every region.
He described former President Mahama as a rogue who superintended over corruption.
Mr Rawlings lamented that during former President Mahama’s era, he personally negotiated for a project to be established at Vorlor in the North Tongu area “but before I released, some party executives had shared the land among themselves.”
Volta Region neglect
He lamented the neglect of Volta Region by the NDC despite the loyalty the region has shown the party.
He said the people lacked basic things and continuously live in chronic poverty.
He fingered Mr Mahama and some NDC Executives of looting away a land he had procured for a project in the region.
