A Leading member of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), Professor Kwamena Ahwoi has given a chronology of events that also saw the late President of Ghana, John Evans Atta Mills has resolve to resign as President.
According to him, the decision taken by the former President was as a result of some disparaging comments directed at him by the former President Jerry John Rawlings at an event in Tamale.
The former President according to Professor Kwamena Ahwoi had made up his mind but was prevailed upon to rescind the decision which could have been the first in the history of the country Ghana.
“There was one particular incident which nearly caused President Mills nearly to resign. In fact, he resigned. The only thing that saved this country was that he called to tell me that he was resigning,” he said while speaking on Citi TV’s Footprints hosted by Samuel Atta Mensah.
“I was at an IEA conference in Aburi when he called to ask me; have you heard what Jerry has gone to say about me in Tamale? I said no I haven’t heard and he said to get the audio and listen to it because I have resigned and I don’t want anybody to try to stop me,” he added.
The former Local Government Minister said it took his intervention to make the former President rescind his decision to resign from the Presidency.
