Former President Jerry John Rawlings has criticised former Foreign Affairs Minister Hanna Tetteh for allegedly maltreating his wife, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings on several occasions.
According to the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), he would have grabbed any chance to campaign against Ms Tetteh who was then contesting for re-election as MP for the Awutu-Senya West constituency in the 2016 elections.
In an address delivered at a Town Hall meeting of cadres and NDC activists at the Arts Centre in Accra on Saturday, Mr Rawlings said the former minister showed disrespect to the former First Lady at several high-profile functions. One of those acts of disrespect, Mr Rawlings said, was Ms Tetteh tight grip on Mrs Rawlings’ hand during handshake at an independence anniversary event.
He indicated that he would have focused his energy at the “Central Region against our own candidate called Hanna Tetteh”, if he had the energy to involve himself in campaign activities during the 2016 polls.
Listen to Mr Rawlings in the attached audio as he explains the conduct of Ms Tetteh, which he described as unacceptable.
