The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt has indicated that claims by former President Jerry John Rawlings that, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) would have lost the 2012 election had the late president John Atta Mills not died, is unwarranted and distasteful.

According to him, Mr. Rawlings should have been more thoughtful of the implications of the remarks considering the relationship he [Mr. Rawlings] had with the late professor and the agony it would bring to the family of the late president.

Mr. Rawlings, in a statement had described the death of the late Prof. Mills as a good omen for the NDC.

“Why deny him [Mahama] his due? Many of us live in a state of self-denial because we seem to have an aversion for unpleasant situations. It is important for us to develop a historical memory of events. I said it over and over, NDC would have lost terribly had God not called the Prof”, a portion of Mr. Rawlings’ statement said.

But Mr. Pratt observed that the comments were unfair to the family of the late president.

“How will the late president’s son – who might not be in Ghana, feel if he puts on his radio and hears that these comments are being made about his father?”, he queried.

“Imagine the consequences for Naadu Mills (widow of the late Mills) and his brother Cadman Mills, imagine them hearing this being said about the former president”, he added.
