Former President Jerry John Rawlings has described businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome as a “crass criminal” who was allowed to dupe the country by the Atta Mills-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
According to Mr Rawlings, who until now had been silent over the Woyome issue, the NDC now had no moral right to accuse anybody of being corrupt because the Woyome scandal was enough evidence that they were guiltier of corruption than the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“You have left crass criminals like Woyome and those who supported him in government and you expect to win an election?” he quizzed, adding, “What is your moral stand? I have a right of saying so, that you have lost the moral high ground.”
Mr. Rawlings made the remark in Aflao on Sunday when he addressed hundreds of people during the June 4 rally.
