Seasoned journalist and Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt has expressed surprise at the sudden unique bond of cordiality between President Nana Akufo-Addo and Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings.

Before becoming President of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo was believed to have a bone of contention to pick with the former President politically, and maybe socially as well.

Both individuals were pictured to be unfriendly sharing no congenial relationship with each other, but there have several occasions witnessed by the general public - beginning a few weeks to the 2016 general polls and later after the elections - where President Akufo-Addo and Mr. Rawlings have been spotted exchanging pleasantries to purport they have a unique compatibility.

This is perhaps what boggles Kwesi Pratt's mind as he sought to find out what really has changed to bring about this new friendship between the two.

On Thursday, February 8, 2018, President Akufo-Addo was at Parliament delivering the State of the Nation Address where he indicated that he draws inspiration from the leadership qualities of Mr. Rawlings.

Speaking on Peace FM's Kokrokoo, Kwesi Pratt was surprised at the President statement wondering how come someone who initially had no ties with Mr. Rawlings would today give indication of him being his source of inspiration.

Mr. Pratt, making his submissions on the programme, kept repeating the phrase "Times change" to suggest that today, Mr. Rawlings and Akufo-Addo are almost best of friends because of a new season.

Do remember what NPP members did to me in this country, Ghana? Why have I gone to his (Rawlings) house? But today, your Presidential candidate is saying he is his inspiration. He inspires him (Akufo-Addo). His principles, his fight and so on inspired him…Today, your Presidential candidate says JJ Rawlings is his inspiration. Not that he has gone to his house or shaken his hands, he’s his inspiration. Times really change!" he said.
