Is Boakye Gyan Now Using Rawlings To Score Political Points?

Boakye Gyan & Rawlings
Boakye Gyan & Rawlings

Is the Rtd. Major Kojo Boakye Djan, National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Jaman South in the Brong Ahafo Region, who is in a camouflage way trying to shake the ruling party’s conundrum, asking the founder, Jerry John Rawlings, to leave the party at his own wish, not probably only trying to take an undue advantage to use J. J. just to scoring political grades?


Major Boakye Djan, who according to him is a co-actor of the June 4 Revolution, told former President Rawlings that the NDC would survive and go ahead to win the December polls without his efforts. He therefore asked the NDC founder, Rawlings to leave the party if he was not comfortable with the actions of its leader J. A. Mills.
Boakye Gyan speaking at a counter June 4 celebrations held by the NDC at Atebubu, said he was the principal actor of the June 4 Revolution and that former President Rawlings was only made a ceremonial head. He therefore discarded the claims by Mr. Rawlings that he brought about the June 4 revolution.
Boakye Djan opines, if Mr. Rawlings feels to partner the main opposition candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and campaign against President Mills, he is free to do so but he Boakye Gyan is cock sure Rawlings would stage a come back to the NDC later like other run-away members of the party such as Dr Obed Asamoah and himself, who deserted the party for several years.
Rtd. Major Kojo Boakye Djan who went into exile during the Rawlings era said he was writing a memorandum to President Mills to issue a decree to make June 4 a national holiday, claiming that the revolution had come to put justice in the fibre of Ghanaian society.
Boakye Djan promised, he would win a landslide victory in Jaman South and would do everything in his might to stop the NPP from winning a single polling station in the constituency.
Wonderfully, Boakye Gyan who seems to be bluffing and bragging only to win some political points by trying to (boastfully) degrade the former head of state J.J. Rawlings, is presently a red handkerchief to most of his own people in the Jaman South constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region, because he Boakye Gyan has demolished a Roman Catholic School building at Babianeha, near Drobo, thereby displacing over 360 school children. Most of the school children are currently staying at home due to the lack of accommodation structures.
