Kufour’s Villagio and African Regent Hotel cause of annual flood – Rawlings

JA Kufuor and JJ Rawlings

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has willfully accused immediate his successor-president, John Agyekum Kufuor, for the annual floods in Accra.

His accusation comes after the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) called on him at his office in Accra on Thursday, October 31, 2019, for his take on the current happenings in Ghana.

Mr. Rawlings who without mincing words accused ex-president John Agyekum Kufuor of the destructive annual floods in the capital city, Accra.

He argued that John Agyekum Kufuor’s  Villagio and acquired the African Regent hotel were built on waterways which eventually compelled other citizens to do the same.

He stressed;

“…The Kufuor one. The Villagio villages was built on the waterway… the southern part of the motorway… why won’t others do it? Their houses and their factories… That’s his legacy! If he can do it, why can’t others do it? He blocked the waterway!”

Mr. Rawlings insisted that Kufour’s legacy can be traced to only the Villagio villages which are now nightmares to the good people of Ghana.

He noted;

“Nkrumah has left his legacy, the freedom and Justice arch… I am saying that’s something he left. Do you want to know the one for Kufuor? Those Villagio villages.”

“That’s your legacy… you said you will take over the hotel because it was overlooking your house… Double standards!.”
