Former AFRC spokesman, Osahene Boakye Djan has challenged ex-President Jerry John Rawlings to a debate on radio on the role of the AFRC in Ghana’s history.

The former Army major threw the challenge on Hitz FM’s Taxi Driver hosted by the indefatigable Blakk Rasta.

In an interview on the show, Boakye Djan contested Rawlings’ assertion that he Boakye Djan hid under his wife’s bed in Tema in the heat of the June 4th Uprising in 1979. According to Boakye Djan at the time, he was commanding their troops so he was mobile and not stationed at one place.

He indicated that it was rather Jerry Rawlings who was missing in action on the fateful June 4.

In the nearly one hour interview on Taxi Driver, Boakye Djan recollected his schooldays with Rawlings at Achimota School where he was acknowledged as an ancestral worshipper.

He recollected an occasion when Rawlings and the late Kojo Lee met him and gave him the Black Power salute after it was put on the notice board that Boakye Djan could use the one hour for devotion to engage in his ancestral worship.

Osahene Boakye Djan also spoke about his journalistic background which saw him working in editorial capacities for both Ghanaian Times and the Daily Graphic. Boakye Djan was a guest on the Blakk Sense segment of the show.

Blakk Sense is a segment that features renowned people of African descent and Blakk Rasta, the host, has featured the likes of Martin Luther King, Philip Quaicoe, Alpha Blondy, Shaka Zulu and similar personalities. The segment also features some of the most controversial black people of all time including the former Central African Republic leader Jean Bedel Bokassa, General Eyadema and Mobutu Sese Seko.

According to Blakk rasta, he is focusing on issues of interest to his listeners and will continue to ferret out the burning issues of our time.
