Miss Frances Awurabena Assiam of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said she wanted Rawlings to go to court with her adding “Rawlings is a coward that’s why he avoids me. If Rawlings touches me, then ‘asem beba dabi,” she added.
At her mother’s funeral she said Atta Mills gave one (1) million cedis while the party donated ¢8milion or customary purposes, it’s not because I was poor. She said it is not the Araba Tagoes’ and Tei Okunors’ who should fight Rawlings’ battle for him. Ms Assiam said this in an interview with the New Punch newspaper after she had a brawl with certain NDC elements in Accra last week led by Araba Tagoe, the deputy Regional organizer of the NDC.
Frances said she wants to face Rawlings herself at a popular arena with perhaps Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, being in the former head of state’s corner, whilst she Frances has her backside as her backup. She described Rawlings and Araba Tagoe as imbeciles who would always act before they think.
The genesis of the whole thing was that there was a panel discussion on Hot Fm last Tuesday about the repeated comments of Rawlings that Kufuor was the most corrupt politician he had ever come across which made Ms Frances Assiam respond that she did not understand why Rawlings would always take on former President Kufuor without justifiable cause.
During the course of her speech, there were hot interjections by Tei Okunnor, and Owusu Bempah who were the NDC representatives on the panel warranting Araba Tagoe to call into the show and also pour vituperative words on Frances. After the programme, certain elements wanted to physically attack her for allegedly insulting Rawlings on the show, but they were restrained. Frances insisted that Rawlings should not send thugs to come and fight for him, but he should come and fight himself. She accused Rawlings of finding fault with everybody except himself in that he even blames his own anointed one, Prof.
Mills for being too “go slow” and appointing some characters into his government. She said Rawlings should emulate the conduct of former heads of State like Clinton, Obasanjo and others and see which of them acts like him. “See, Obasanjo is even being accused of sleeping with his own daughter who is a doctor and yet the only thing he could say was that it wasn’t true and wondered what Rawlings would say, if he was in Obasanjo’s shoes.
