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.

Name: That Short Man
Didn't Mr Rawlings Called Nana Addo Names? So if Uncle Kwesi is surprised about the turn around of the same persons who did not want to see eye to eye with each other, why the bashing? Is he not entitled to speak his mind over issues here in Ghana? No wonder Uncle Kwesi is Greater and knowledgeable than all those of you who are insulting him, hence the hatred.

Kwesi, as long as you have breath, YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND CONFESS JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND PERSONAL SAVIOUR AND HE WILL FORGIVE AND SAVE YOU and you will have eternal life. Bible says in Isa 55:7 that "...OUR GOD...WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON" and then John 1:12 will kick in: "But as many as received him, to them gave he power (LEGAL RIGHT) to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. After YOU EXPERIENCE THIS LOVE FROM GOD through the forgiveness of your SINS, THEN YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT TRUE LOVE AND FORGIVENESS IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED IT and then you will know what really is going on between Akufo Addo and Rawlings. Bible says "...LOVE...COVER A MULTITUDE OF SINS" 1 Peter 4:8. Don't let the world leave you behind when everybody is changing, you might become irrelevant and extinct. It is said that the dinosaur became extinct because it did not adapt to change in its time when everyone else around it was changing. Yes you said it all, TIME CHANGES SO CHANGE AS WELL SO YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THINGS BETTER.

Sometimes, I don't know how people think. Look, JJ is afraid Nana will jail him. He knows Nana has the heart to evoke all the laws protecting him. JJ is a smart man. When he realized Nana can become the president, he started praising him and making him feel good. JJ and Konadu knows Nana can drag them to court to answer questions about the companies they acquired through 31st December womens movement. JJ is a political genius and don't forget he is the father of the 4th republic. He may not have read political science, but he is a smart soldier don't forget.
