The Rawlingses Want Power Because Of Ghana’s Oil -Boakye Gyan

As Jerry John Rawlings and his wife, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings continue to irk majority of Ghanaians with their mental disorder which is referred to as Messiahnic Delusions by some psychologists, Capt Rtd. Kwadwo Boakye Gyan, Spokesperson for the erstwhile AFRC, seems to have a fair idea as to what is pushing the former President and his wife to want power at all cost.

According to Boakye-Gyan, as far as he is concerned, Rawlings and his wife are desperate for power because of Ghana’s imminent oil resources.

Speaking on TV3’s Agenda programme a day before the June 4 declaration that Konadu Agyeman Rawlings is dreaming of becoming the flagbearer of the NDC in 2012, Osahene Boakye-Gyan did not mince words in deciphering the real motive behind what Rawlings and his wife are up to.

According to the AFRC’s Spokesperson, he knows Rawlings very well and so can read through the mind of the former President and his wife.

Speaking his mind without much difficulty, Osahene Boakye-Gyan spoke at length about who Jerry Rawlings is and how he has the capacity to manipulate and use pretence to achieve his selfish ends.

According to Boakye-Gyan, all the attempts by the Rawlingses to create the impression that they are not wealthy, is a façade because he knows it for a fact that a lot of their actions are actuated by the desire to acquire wealth. For those who don’t know, Captain Kwadwo Boakye-Gyan was the best man when Jerry John Rawlings was wedding Nana Konadu and both men were very close pals until they fell out with each other somewhere along the line.
