According to Osahene Boakye Djan, the Council members of the AFRC were divided as to whether to hand over or not. He said the majority of the AFRC members were in support of Rawlings who was against the handover.

He alleged that the Rawlings group were under the influence of Lawyer Adumoah Bossman and some key military officers whom he fell short of mentioning their names claiming those people are still alive he did not want to ruffle feathers.

He added that the anti-handover wing of the AFRC led by former President Rawlings thought their long stay in power can make them amass wealth but he single handedly ensured that the baton of power is handed over to the Liman government.
