Rawlings’ wife most corrupt woman in Ghana - Alhaji Bature

Former First lady Nana Kondau Agyemang Rawlings has been described as the country’s most corrupt woman, yet his husband has the effrontery of tagging others as such.

Alhaji Bature Iddrissu, Managing Editor of the Al Hajj Newspaper and a staunch supporter of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who made the allegation on Adom TV on Tuesday during a its newspaper review, dared her to drag him to court over the claim.

“I am daring her to take me to court and prove otherwise. Nana Konadu is the most corrupt oman in Ghana and she is currently in court over that. Where are the Ghana National Trading Company (GNTC) properties, where are the cocoa factories and the Nsawam Cannery “, he asked.

Contributing to claims by former President Jerry John Rawlings that greed and corruption propelled the NDC to opposition, Alhaji Bature said corruption is under the nose of the former president but he has decided to turn a blind eye on it.

“Where are The 31st December Schools? Rawlings and his wife are scared Nana Akufo-Addo will revisit the cases where she (Nana Konadu) allegedly squashed state cash and that is why he is beginning to behave in that manner. I am telling NDC members that Rawlings want to break the party and he is at the verge of breaking it. He sees that he cannot be accepted in the party and his plans to take over the party are not materializing so he is scheming his way through. The fact is that NDC has outlived Rawlings”, he said.

According to Mr. Rawlings during the 38th anniversary of the June 4 celebration practices such as sickening greed, selfishness and corruption that is contrary to the values upheld by the NDC and ideals of June 4 he caused the party’s disgraceful defeat at the polls

“Nobody is saying don’t make money, make it good and clean; but not some of the ones I know; sickening, that kind of greed and selfishness, look at where it landed us. Or is it because this government is not behaving the way Kufuor did in his time, so we think we are okay? I know what’s going on. I know some of the things they are running into,” he added.

Alhaji Bature has however challenged Rawlings to deal with the corruption in his own backyard.
