It has emerged that the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Dramani Mahama had pulled a gun at former President Jerry John Rawlings before.
Mr. Mahama reportedly pulled the gun at the late Ghanaian leader during a heated argument that ensued between them.
This revelation which is coming out for the first time was revealed by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasoako popularly called Chairman Wontumi.
Speaking on his Wontumi Television station and monitored by GhanaXtra.Com, the outspoken party executive revealed that Mr. Mahama cannot be crying over the death of Mr. Rawlings based on his actions towards the founder whilst he was alive.
According to Chairman Wontumi, Mr. Mahama’s outward display of sympathy looks shocking and strange as pulling a gun at Mr. Rawlings was indicative that he wanted him dead and it was just a matter of time.
Speaking in Twi, Chairman Wontumi said: “Mahama wanted Rawlings dead a long time ago so where from the sudden hypocrisy? he quizzed.
He continued “Let me tell you something, he one time pulled a gun on Rawlings during an argument. That alone is clear that he wanted the man dead”.
Chairman Wontumi however failed to provide any evidence to back his wild allegations against Mr. Mahama.
Former President Jerry John Rawlings passed away on Thursday 12, 2020 at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital where he was on admission.
He was 73 years old.
