He explained: "the former President...why some of us always take him on is the current problem facing the Mills Administration can be traced directly to him (Rawlings).

"I say directly to him because as founder of the NDC and a former President, former Head of State for 19 years, he has so much worth of knowledge and experience that he could have used to help the Mills administration.

"But ask yourself or find out if the former President had ever sat down with the Administration to air his concerns, all the time what you hear is either on the air or in the newsprint...I know if he had taken the pains to sit down with the President most of the challenges, the issues of the foot-soldiers would not have arisen and that is why I am taking him on, Alhaji Bature added.
