Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi who is currently enjoying media coverages over his recently released book had collapsed during a running competition with the then Head of State, J.J Rawlings and few others at the Accra Sports Stadium in the PNDC Era decades ago.

A throwback Video that chanced on shows the young Kwamena Ahwoi collapsed at the finishing line.

It took the swift intervention of medics to get him back to his feet after few minutes of attending to him on the pitch.

In the video, Former President Rawlings who emerged winner of the competition said in an interview with a journalist of the pitch that he had to stop smoking in order to build his stamina.

It has never came to limelight before in Ghana that J.J Rawlings used to smoke during his days as Head of State of the country.

However, what Rawlings said in the video is a clear indication that the much loved J.J Rawlings used to smoke in the past.
