What about the insults Rawlings poured on Atta Mills from 2009 till he died?.And the fromation of the NDP,plus Rawlings's support for Akuffo Addo's NPP?.Then Konadu's assurance that Mills would be reduced to a "One Term" President?. These points were missing in Rawlings's "tribute" if not "TRIBURTARY"? Yet Rawlings has the guts to try and say something nice about Atta Mills.Konadu must be a very happy person and we are looking forward to her running for Presidency in December,2012?. AH sO?

Papa J's tribute has no basis. Remember he and his cohorts vowed to make the late Prez a one-time president. And it has come to pass. Since he has suddenly become the lover boy of the NPP, he should be the first reference point of investigating into the prez's demise. OR is the NPP afraid to confront Papa J directly? Brave cowards indeed!

ease I enteat all loving ghanaians toisten to JJ very well. He is like Mark Anthony for Julius Caeser to Prof Mills and the others are like Brutus with Caeser to the prof.
jj should continue with d truth to ghanaians

Is even in the bible that when you are a child you do everything like a child. Growing up as a child I detested J.J so much, may be it was because in 1979 most of my friends in Achimota school had their fathers or parents killed during J.J's PNDC regime. It was very wrong which I still condemn. But now Rawlings is a man I highly respect after my deceased father. He is indeed a great man of his words and also stands by his words.NDC gurus are so much afraid for what he stands for. We support you papa J. Tell it all to Ghanaians.

If u observed events carefully, u would realize that Rawlings made valid points that could be seen by many people afar. My only problem was the manner in which those criticisms were made.
Aug 13, 2012 15-01
Crticise but the mode is important. Is Rawlings saying that he never had it wrong? I believe he had admiration for those who could approach him with constructive criticism or suggestions. Was it all those that he took and worked with? With Mills as the prez he could use better approaches to get his message to him than he did. Has Rawlings been satisfied with the way the wife is going? What about Adams or MTN? They have always had it right to him and Mills the other way. Approches in advising is always important.

Ghanaians never like the truth lie to them and praise them.... they will be happy with you. Papa J we love you no mather how bad they try to paint you.

Rawlings do the right things at the right time and always stands for truth. roll on papa 'J'

What is your name Dickson, listen to your self and ask under what circumstances did chairman made statement. Let us say the truth and the truth will help. Let us not twist the truth to suite us.
Chairman can never be perfect like our great exemplar Jesus Christ but he try his best to say the truth. his actions will not favor every body. Let look at what to Mose when they are crossing red sea, let come home and think about what happen uncle Atta when he was alive and when he was no more. I will always in my small support chairman to say the truth, yes it is bitter to say the truth.

THE TROUBLE BEDEVILING THE BLACK MAN IS IN HIS HEART , HIS HEAD AND HIS SPIRIT!! WHY?!!!!!!! THE TROUBLE OF THE BLACK MAN IS THAT OF RESPECT FOR ANY RULE OF ENGAGEMENT. AND I WILL BLAME THE MIS INTERPRETERS OF THE BIBLE FOR THIS. WHEN SOME ONE HELP A BLACK MAN , HE FORGETS ABOUT THE HIS HELPERS AND GO STRAIGHT TO HIS PASTORS WHO ARE NO MORE THAN MIND BENDERS, HE WILL WILL PASS DEROGRATORY REMARKS ABOUT HIS HELPER TO HIS PASTORS WHO WILL JUST TELL HIM TO IGNORE HIS HELPER, THEN HE WILL DONATE HUGE THANKS GIVING TO THE CHURCH/PASTOR, AND MANY BELIEVED THAT THEY HAVE THANKED GOD MANY TIMES WHILE THEY ARE REALLY UNGRATEFUL TO GOD. "JESUS SAID WHEN I WAS HUNGRY YOU GAVE ME NO FOOD" , WHEN I WAS IN PRISON YOU DID NOT PAY ME A VISIT , ETC. AND THEY ASKED JESUS WHEN DID ALL THESE HAPPEN , AND HE REPLIED AS LONG AS YOU DID IT TO ANY ONE OF THESE (MEANING YOUR (NEIGHBORS) YOU HAVE DONE IT TO ME. WHICH CLEARLY STATED THAT THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GIVE TANKS TO GOD IS TO HELP OUR NEIGHBORS. WE TALK OF LATE PRESIDENT JOHN ATTA- MILLS, BUT WE FORGOT THE PEOPLE WHO GAVE HIM TO US , PEOPLE WE PASSED ALL SORTS OF INSULT TO WHEN THEY MUTED THE IDEA OF ATTA-MILLS BECOMING OUR PRESIDENT, WE WILL NEVER GET IT RIGHT WHEN WE THANK THE WRONG PEOPLE FOR WHAT GOD DID FOR US AND PAY THE PEOPLE SENT BY GOD TO HELP US WITH EVIL., I WANT YOU PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT MANY OF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN THANKING GOD FOR HIS MERCY, YOU SENT YOUR THANKSGIVING TO THE WRONG PLACES WASTE!! , THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT IS THE TROUBLE THAT WILL KILL THE BLACK MAN. PAY THE PEOPLE THAT GOD SENT TO YOU WITH GOODNESS, OR YOU WILL NOT HAVE THANKED GOD. I KNOW THAT PRESIDENT RAWLINGS LOST A VERY DEAR ONE. EVEN NANA KONADU DOES .

JJ was disturbed with the set up in prof 's administration and governance that may lead the country astry. Just b'cos he knew prof, belierve in his intergrity and maturity, spear-headed prof's campaign several times and won in 2008.JJ saw and felt clearly the prof is being used for personal gains in which he stressed prof had been enclaved by greedy bastard and urged him to do-away with them.JJ was preaching a good sermon and people should not twist his pronouncements and advices for a good cause.JJ had nothing against prof but rather his greedy wing commanders and surface gold miners.

I never saw our 1st President Nkrumah but saw the others and vividly remember papa J all through. As some may not like him because of a few atrocities during the early days of the revolution, which virtually affected everyone in Ghana, I have personally come to like this man because of his integrity. He is one who says it as it is. Ghanaians like people who say one thing and do the other. Papa J you are the prophet of our time and wish that you will live long so no politician will take Ghana for a ride. With you around they lie bad. Your tribute indeed say it all that you indeed wanted the Prof to succeed but people mistook you for hating him. God bless you and pray that you will offer your full support to the new administration throughout the electioneering campaign for victory in 2012. You are indeed a gift to mother Ghana.

Hello there everyone! Those who served under Papa J and are now criticizing him and dragging his name in the mad-do they want to tell me that Rawlings of yesteryear; young with his youthful exuberance was better than the matured Mr. Rawlings of today? Ghanaian politicians are hypocrites, they were singing hallelujah to Mr. Rawlings' name because he was giving them jobs. Let the political tide change today for Rawlings to get power to appoint and fire, they will hail not only Mr. Rawlings but Nana as well. Why wouldn't Rawlings call them greedy bastards. Mr. Rawlings criticized the Good old Prof. because knowing the prof. he couldn't phantom the Prof. to be looking on while people chop wawaa like that. To Mr. Rawlings, never mind, sickness took the better part you knew from Prof. Mills. Perhaps you were expecting too much from the old sick Prof. who defied sickness till death while some greedy bastrds urged him on for their parochial interest. Posterity will judge us.

Yr excy, pls disregard those nasty comments.Remember the text i sent u yesterday.You have spoken the truth.We the true NDC members and supporters knew u never hated Prof, even John Mahama though u had problem with him new u didnt hate Prof,It has been some of the people around him.Our problem was the way way you were expressing yr view in public and some of the words you were using.That was the problem.There some out there who would want to create a wedge b/n u and John Mahama and i pray that God wlh help the President to see through their plans.But i tink Mr.Rawlings must consider changing his spoke person.Kofi Adams is very loyal but does not hv the intelligence, stature and the competence to be spoke person for the whole Papa J.Long live John Rawlings, Long live John Attah-Mills and long live John Mahama.

@ effua mansa. Well said!!

Some Ghanaians may not agree with Papa J bcos they hate the truth. Ghana's under-development is largely due to corruption, greed, selfishness, indiscipline which are sons & daughters of untruthfulness. J.J, even if u lose your popularity bcos of the thruth, heaven will support u
