Jerry Rawlings Speaks About The Ousting of President Paul Biya of Cameroon - You Will Not Believe What He Said.

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has denied ever granting an interview to Radio France International in which he called for the ousting of President Paul Biya of Cameroon.

A statement from the Communications Directorate of the former president’s office, signed by Mr Kobina Andoh Amoakwa, said: “The attention of the office of His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings has been drawn to a false report on Radio France International (RFI) alleging that he spoke on the situation in the Gambia during which he purportedly called on ECOWAS to influence the AU to send troops to Cameroun to oust President Paul Biya.”

“President Rawlings has granted no interview to any local or international news media on the subject matter and we condemn in the strongest terms the attempt by RFI to smear his reputation with such falsehood.

“The former President is best known for his conflict resolution roles within the sub-region and beyond and any attempt to attribute to him false news on serious matters of international diplomacy is reckless, unethical, unprofessional and slanderous,” the statement added.

Mr Rawlings’ office warned that any media house that publishes “falsehood about former President Rawlings should note that immediate legal action will be taken against them for such fabrications.”
