Former Ghanaian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Viictor Smith has described the founder of the NDC, Flt. Lt. Jerry Rawlings as being hypocritical.

He said most of the decisions ex-President Mahama took while in office were in consultation with Jerry Rawlings.

Speaking on 21 Minutes with KKB, Smith described the ex-President as untruthful.

He said, “He [Rawlings] used to visit President Mahama to have coffee. I know that for a fact. When he arrives at President Mahama’s residence in the morning, he is given preferential treatment because of who he [is] you know…”.

Mr Smith said Rawlings is untruthful if he says President Mahama didn’t value or sought his counsel as someone who has been Head of State for a combined period of 19 years.


He bemoaned the attitude of the ex-President towards the own party he formed. Victor Smith said, "“So we don’t understand why he is doing this to us… that’s the why the NDC people should be asking him: why, why, why?”
