A former Deputy Minister for Education under the John Evans Atta Mills presidency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has rejected reports that some young appointees of the Mills administration were recruited to ‘attack the founder of NDC.”

According to him, the reports which tags him as one of the young appointees are “false, malicious, offensive and most unfair”.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the Member of Parliament for North Tongu said, “I have a mind of my own and I am not one to be “recruited” to say or do what I do not believe in or consider dishonourable.

He explained that the record of the late President Atta Mills were without blemish and he [Atta Mills] possessed exemplary virtues which did not need insults to be defended.
“In more than a decade of public life, the reverence and respect I have for our elders and forebears within and without the NDC cannot be questioned. I have always been greatly indebted to our venerable elders for their generous wise counsel and mentorship in shaping my career.
“Everything within me abhors the politics of insults and denigrating our elders knowing that affronts our much cherished traditions. Indeed, the distinguished author himself acknowledges at page 211 that in speaking for Prof. Mills, we did not resort to insults but logic,” he added in the statement.
Another ‘young’ government appointee at the time, Dr Edward Omane Boamah has also vehemently denied the claims attributed to Professor Kwamena Ahwoi in the book, “Working with Rawlings.”
