Jerry John Rawlings says he will soon deal with the likes of Prof Kwamena Ahwoi whose intention, according to the former President, is to dent his reputation and that of his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
In a Facebook post Monday, Mr Rawlings described Mr Ahwoi amongst others as people with a “callous agenda of bile” who are “desperately seeking control of the NDC party.”
This, according to him, could collapse and drown the words of the NDC party authority if critical attention is not given to it.
The former president’s comments come after, the launch of former Local Government Minister, Kwamena Ahoi’s book, ‘Working with Rawlings’ outlined in comprehensive detail, his working relationship with former Mr Rawlings with adjoining events.

He explained in the book that somewhere along the line, they drifted apart and also talks about the political history of Ghana between 1979 to 2010.
But former Mr Rawlings says he is tired of defending himself despite all the sacrifices he has made for the country.
“Much as I find it tiring and tedious to be engaging in self defence when I have given my all, all these years, I will soon deal with the callous agenda of bile by the likes of Kwamena Ahwoi, who are desperately seeking control of the NDC party.
“The NDC could, should and has survived on the authority of the word but if care is not taken, it will collapse and drown as has been happening, on the word of those in authority,” his post read.
He then expressed gratitude to Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for taking steps to seriously protect the environment and also for “tampering justice with mercy on Nana Bantamahene”, following the controversial illegal appropriation of Kumasi lands for private gain.
Mr Rawlings also commended President of the National House of Chiefs Togbe Afede for taking the initiative to lead a delegation of Volta Chiefs to border areas in the region to ascertain things for themselves relating to the ongoing voters registration exercise.
