Felix Kwakye Ofosu Distances Himself from the so called Rawlings Attack Squad

A Former Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, has debunked media reports purported to suggests he was once recruited and groomed to attack Former President Rawlings during the Atta Mills government.

See full statement below.


I have become aware of media reports suggesting that I was recruited together with others to denigrate or attack President Jerry John Rawlings following his criticism of the late President John Evans Attah Mills of blessed memory.

While acknowledging that the media reports are at best an exaggeration of portions of a book authored by the highly respected Prof Kwamena Ahwoi,I wish to place on record at the no point have I been part of any plot,recruitment exercise or strategy to “talk back” at President Rawlings.

It is a matter of public knowledge that I and others have rallied in the past to correct misimpressions created about the late President Mills during his tenure.My contribution to any such effort was based purely on principle,conviction and loyalty to the then President of Ghana and leader of the NDC.

I have never required prompting or goading to speak about what I believe to be right or wrong.

All my contributions in the said matter were devoid of insults or aspersions as claimed by the media reports.It is worth noting that the book in question speaks about our resort to logic rather than insults.

Any claim therefore that there was a grand design to malign anyone for criticizing President Mills is inaccurate.
