Former Ghana Ambassador to Namibia and Botswana Alhaji Abdul-Raman Haruna Atta has said that Professor Kwamena Ahwoi’s book ‘Working with Rawlings’ is just a literary work and should not be viewed as a conspiracy.
“If people are taking Prof. Ahwoi’s book as conspiracy, they are not doing good for the literary development in our country.
“Prof. Ahwoi’ book is about something he experienced; I don’t think it should be something harmful.”
He said this while speaking on 3FM’s Sunrise with host Alfred Ocansey.
Former President Jerry John Rawlings on Wednesday, August 26 reacted to the publication and denied most of the content.
He denied, for instance, that his wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, wanted to be the running mate to Professor John Evans Atta Mills as stated in the book.
He also refuted claims that his wife did not wear the late Professor Mills’ T-Shirt to campaign for him.
Haruna Atta said the response from the former president is legitimate.
“If someone has written a book about you and you think part of it are inaccurate and fabrications, it’s within your rights to respond.
“But in the process, literary pursuit should not be killed.”
Haruna Atta revealed that he has also published a book on former President John Mahama.
He pointed out that the book titled ‘Standing with JDM; Ahwene Pa Nkasa’ highlights mistakes of the former Ghanaian leader.
“When you read my book, some mistakes have been highlighted, dumsor, Gitmo 2, Montie 3, traditional governance and the ballot box.”
