President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday met with Ghana’s former presidents – Jerry John Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama at the Flagstaff House.
The purpose of the meeting according to the Presidency, was to seek the views of the former presidents on “some governance-enhancing measures Akufo-Addo’s administration intends to take.”
A communiqué issued after the meeting, which lasted for about two hours, said the meeting “was held in a good atmosphere, one of frank exchanges and mutual respect.”
“It is the intention of President Akufo-Addo to have further meetings with the three former Presidents in the future,” the communiqué added.
Prior to the meeting, observers had predicted that, former President John Mahama would be speaking to Akufo-Addo on the activities of pro-NPP vigilante groups in the country.
At a meeting with former appointees who served under his administration, Mahama said, “I am going to have the opportunity to tell Nana Addo that they should stop this… This cannot continue, this thuggery is not good for our country, and the point is we thought we had a good transition.”
It is also unclear whether former President Jerry John Rawlings, who has been very vocal on issues of corruption, brought up such issues.
