A Presidential Staffer, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye, has said sources close to former First Lady Naadu Mills say she is outraged by the comments made by former President J.J Rawlings.
According to Mr.
Mills found the timing of the comments insensitive.
Rawlings in an interview with the BBC
stated that President Mills could have lived longer had he been advised accordingly.
But speaking to Citi News
Vanderpuye said the former first lady is disappointed with the comments of Mr.
He stated that, “I seriously believe the comments the former President made has made situations worse and more horrible.
I have spoken to one or two people who are close to that house and they tell me she is livid, she is so appalled and she could not believe it.”
Vanderpuye further added that “if you show so much disrespect to the dead, if you say such unexpected insults to the dead, then why do you come and commensurate with the family.”
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Rawlingses, Kofi Adams, said Nii Vanderpuye cannot speak on behalf of the first lady.
He stressed that “President Rawlings will surely sign the book of condolence.
When all is done, they will go there and do what is expected.
You cannot at this time turn people against each other for some of the acts or ways you should have managed things that you did not manage.”
He, however, defended the statement made by the founder of the party saying it was not unsavory.
