Never in the political history of Jerry John Rawlings has he heaped praises on another Ghanaian politician than President Nana Akufo-Addo.

His criticism of former Ghanaian leaders appears to have ended with Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. The founder of the National Democratic Congress found problems with the late President Atta Mills and former President John Mahama – both from the NDC.

John Agyekum Kufuor, his successor in 2001, endured heavy criticism which still lasts to date. But Nana Akufo-Addo, the 4th President after Jerry Rawlings, appears to have dodged a bullet.
