Former National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has revealed what he says is the soft spot of former President Jerry John Rawlings.

Speaking on Joy Prime’s morning show on Monday, the politician said his first ever encounter with the former president was after a mammoth students’ demonstration in 1995.

“Our very first encounter happened in a 1995 students’ demonstration led by me and some colleagues, we demonstrated because students were being affected by a lot of issues,” he said.

“We poured out our grievances to President Rawlings who calmly listened to us and comforted us, he went on to assure us that all issues affecting us will be dealt with and he delivered on his promise,” he added. 


Describing the former president as a great leader, Mr Adams revealed a secret most people don’t know about Ex-President Rawlings.

 “Till you get close to him you will never know how Rawlings is, he makes the environment around him very relaxing. He will always crack a joke for those around him to fill relaxed, especially when the atmosphere is tensed,” he noted.

 “I have worked with a lot of leaders, but his leadership style is different and it has influenced me a lot, even with how I relate with people,” he added.
