Former president Jerry John Rawlings has hinted at publishing a book that will chronicle his political life after his wife, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings launched hers on Monday.
Congratulating his wife on the successful launch of the book, former President Rawlings said “I hope the first book of hers carries enough essentials even as we wait for mine and the additional two she intends to write.”
In a Facebook message to congratulate the former First Lady, the former President expressed confidence that the book will correct the falsehood that has been peddled and fed to the citizenry for so long.

Titled ‘It Takes a Woman’, Mrs Rawlings’ book talked about her political journey as a first lady, her advocacy for women empowerment and the founding of the National Democratic Party (NDP) which was successfully launched.

“Though it was pre-planned, I, unfortunately, missed it because of an unforeseen delayed return to Ghana from a scheduled medical.”

“I am happy Nana has taken the bold step to tell her story and it was quite impressive that personalities from across the political divide, business people, traditional authorities, diplomats, friends, and sympathisers were present in their numbers to support what undoubtedly was a historic moment.”

“Let us profit from the truth by taking it beyond mere academic exercises. If we cannot enrich our lives with it, then let us silently know and recognise those who have engaged in so much political, social, economic and judicial mischief and still continue to profit from it.”

“So much falsehood has been peddled and fed to some of us for so long. I can only hope and pray that we are bold enough or capable of mustering courage to now face some hard truths.”

“Let us use this opportunity and gift to ourselves what she has compiled into a book. I have absolute faith and confidence in her integrity and I know she has a better memory and recollection of events that we have all been through over the years. Be bold and educate yourself with a copy of the truth,” former President Rawlings stated. –classfmonline.com
