Mahama explains why Rawlings 'snubbed' him at 25th anniversary celebration

SHARE:


Former President John Mahama has dismissed rumours that there is a feud between him and former President Jerry Rawlings.

Rebutting to a viral video in which his predecessor was seen giving him a cold handshake at the recent Silver Jubilee celebration of the Fourth Republic, Mahama explains that, having worked with the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for a long time, he understands his mood swings.

“Sometimes he’s in a mood where he doesn’t want to engage in any conversation and so recently at the Thanksgiving; they were giving all kinds of interpretation to the handshake. There are occasions where he comes and you don’t know what mood he is in, he greets military style and passes but there are on some other occasions, I met him in Kpando and we had a very warm handshake and we exchanged pleasantries.

Speaking in an interview with Abdul Hay Mooomen on the state on GTV on January 9 2018, he said “There are sometimes you sit next to him and he is not in the mood to talk but sometimes you sit next to him and he is in the mood to talk. You have to learn what mood he is in and adjust to it.

John Mahama has also emphasized that “I don’t have any problem with President Rawlings; he gave me my opportunities in life. When I came in as a young member of parliament, it was his appointment as Deputy Minister that got me noticed and he appointed me as Minister of Communications until we left office in 2001, and so, I don’t have absolutely anything against President Rawlings,” John Mahama clarified

Background

In a 14-seconds video that is trending on social media , ex-President Mahama appeared to have arrived earlier and was by his seat exchanging pleasantries with other arriving dignitaries including former President John Agyekum Kufuor.

Former President Kufuor arrives moments later and they hug each other in a very cheerful manner while exchanging some words and beaming with hearty smiles.

This is immediately followed by the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who comes in with a frowned face, fail to look at John Mahama who also looks at the opposite direction, shakes his hand and moves on.
