The Office of former President Jerry John Rawlings has denied reports by Radio France International (RFI), attributed to him calling on Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to influence the African Union (AU) to send troops to Cameroun to oust President Paul Biya.
A statement signed by Mr. Kobina Andoh Amoakwa of the Communications Directorate of the office of the former President, said “President Rawlings has granted no interview to any local or international news media on the subject matter, and we condemn in the strongest terms the attempt by RFI to smear his reputation with such falsehood.”
It said the former President was best known for his conflict resolution role within the West African sub-region and beyond, and any attempt to attribute to him false news on serious matters of international diplomacy was reckless, unethical, unprofessional and slanderous.
The statement cautioned media outlets that publish falsehood about former President Rawlings, to note that immediate legal action would be taken against them for such fabrications.
