The Managing Director of Intercity STC Coaches Limited, Nana Akomea, says that the late Former President Jerry John Rawlings is not the founder of the Fourth Republic as many people have been made to believe.
According to him, Rawlings came to overthrow the Constitutional Democracy which was in existence in Ghana in 1979, ruled for a long period, only to take Ghana back to the same Constitutional Democracy he overthrew.
Speaking on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana on Friday, November 12, 2021, Nana Akomea stated that Rawlings has done his best for the country but claims that he is the founder of the Fourth Republic are not true.
He revealed that his biggest problem with Rawlings is the destruction of the democracy that Ghana had in the Third Republic.
According to him, the democracy we are practicing in Ghana would have been much stronger if Rawlings did not interrupt the democratic process in the country for several years.
He noted that Rawlings was only the first President of the Fourth Republic but not the founder.
