While former Attorney-General, Martin Amidu who still retains his National Democratic Congress (NDC) membership in his scathing letters places the defeat of the party in the 2016 general elections on poor decisions of Dramani Mahama as president, a deputy Chief of Staff under President John Mahama, Dr. Sawyerr reckons the incessant outbursts by Martin Amidu and Jeremiah Rawlings against independent minded party people and Mr. Mahama accounts for the defeat.

Martin Amidu & Valerie Sawyerr

In a counter letter to Martin Amidu, Dr. Valerie Sawyerr was relentless in pointing out the hypocrisies of Rawlings and Amidu which has since gone viral.

Among others on Rawlings she submitted: “They say he booms [but] I say he buzzes…like an agitated mosquito…looking for his next victim.”

On Amidu, the jab was swift: “I am not a soothsayer, neither am I a harbinger of gloom and doom…but once again I say to you…this time with a nation full of witnesses…that your Achilles heel will destroy you.”

Jerry Rawlings

With scathing epistles flying from the two, a former National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chairman and former Attorney General, Dr. Obed Asamoah has revealed he congratulated Dr. Valerie Sawyerr for her acerbic criticism of Mr. Rawlings.

The former A-G revealed to Joy News’ Emefa Apau that in Mr Rawlings’ eyes: “Everybody is a crook and he is a saint,” adding the introspection is good for the party as its happening years before the next election is up.

Dr. Obed Asamoah who is the longest serving A-G and Foreign Affairs Minister under Mr. Rawlings also disclosed he didn’t have clashes with his boss Rawlings in government except when it came to the party with him imposing late president John Mills on them.
