READ KUFFOUR’S PRESS RELEASE;
Agyekum Kuffour and Jerry Rawlings had real political history in their active days. They made Ghana’s democracy a remarkable one as each contributed their quota to it’s success we see today.
The two statesmen battled for the Presidency in 1996 with Rawlings winning before Kuffour later returned to beat Atta Mills for the 2000 elections.
Despite having been in power for 20 years at the time, Rawlings reluctantly relinquished power to Kuffour which most observers agree is the moment Ghana’s democracy became firmly established.
