Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Hon. Sam Okudzeto Ablakwa rubbishes claims made against his person that he, together with Dr. Omane Boamah and Felix Ofosu Kwakye were recruited and groomed to launch attacks on Former President Rawlings whenever he [Rawlings] attacks then president, late Professor Mills.
Hon. Ablakwa’s outburst came after former Local Government Minister under the Rawlings’ administration, Professor Kwamena Ahwoi revealed in his now controversial book ‘Working with Rawlings’ that he few other young politicians in the opposition NDC were paid so they can launch verbal attacks on Rawlings should he speak ill of the late Prof. Mills who was the President at the time.
However, Hon. Ablakwa denied Prof. Ahwoi’s claim and described it as false, malicious, offensive and most unfair.
The former Deputy Education Minister under the Mahama’s administration further revealed in his statement issued in Accra that the respect he has for elders within the NDC party can not be questioned.
Below is Hon. Ablakwa’s full statement as released on social media.
