Mr. & Mrs. Rawlings

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) Youths have faulted the Government for rehabilitating the house of the mother of Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings for her to move in, while neglecting Mrs Fulera Limann, who was a First Lady before her.

A statement Mr James Kwabena Bomfeh, Youth Organiser of CPP, signed on Tuesday said: “We the youth of the CPP and PNC (People’s National Convention) dare say that until Mrs Fulera Limann (the wife of Former President Dr Hilla Limann) is well settled let no one disturb us with the urgency of resettling the Rawlingses.

“They came to overtake some in line already. So if the course of providence has allowed us the opportunity to revisit the situation and correct the dastard anomaly, then why don’t we use the occasion to wipe the slate even cleaner, and do what is logically right, humane and proper for all concerned.”

The statement said: “The issue of Dr Hilla Limann is coming up because of the many versions of attempts to resettle Former President Rawlings. History teaches us that Dr Hilla Limann and the PNP (People’s National Party) were dragged out of office by the PNDC (Provisional National Defence Council) under the leadership of Jerry John. The PNDC also stole the right of the people to choose their leaders at the point of gun.

“It was the same Flt Lt. Jerry John Rawlings (Rtd), who signed the 1992 Constitution into being. Could it be that it was a deliberate ploy or government policy to disregard Former President Limann and humiliate him to death to the extent that the payment of his hospital bills became a huge issue as to who was to pay?”

The statement said: “As a country we have failed woefully to recognize our Past Heads of State and to accord them the respect their offices require. Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah (The First President) was demonised and criminalised by the NLC (National Liberation Council) that overthrew him. Prof Busia (Professor Kofi Abrefa Busia, Prime Minister of the Second Republic) was also demonized. Dr Limann was disgraced and humiliated to abject poverty till he died.”

The CPP Youth said any careful study of this phenomenon would reveal that it was discouraging well meaning, patriotic citizens from offering themselves for national service.

The statement said: “In the end, the failure to get the true selfless leaders, we get cheats and charlatans, who present themselves as sheep though they are in reality, energy suckers, hence the extent of our underdevelopment in the face of abundant resources.

“If the future of this country is going to be any different, then we must begin today, to change our attitudes and embrace best practices that can help us to take our rightful position in world affairs.

“Let the nation show regret to Dr Limann and the PNP family. Let Former President Rawlings and his wife apologise unreservedly to Mrs Fulera Limann and the PNP for the unnecessary and unjustifiable treason they committed against the sovereign will of Ghana,” the statement said.
