Former Local Government Minister, Prof. Kwamena Ahwoi has revealed how he discovered the former Electoral Commissioner (EC), Dr. Afari-Gyan at a drinking spot.

He made this revelation in his latest book titled working with Rawlings which has received opposition from some persons mentioned in there.

The Professor said he had been sent on a mission by Captain Kojo Tsikata to make contact with Kofi Drah, a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Political Science at the University of Ghana.

He was expected to convince him to join the committee of experts to work on Ghana’s 1992 constitution.

Prof. Ahwoi said while he was on his way, he branched into a drinking spot at Achimota forest area where a number of University of Ghana lecturers including Dr Kwesi Botchwey used to meet for occasional social drinks.

He recalled meeting Dr. Afari-Gyan at the drinking spot drinking alone and decided to engage him in a conversation.

Being intrigued by his thinking, Prof. Ahwoi indicated in his controversial book “Working With Rawlings” that the conversation dragged.

“I joined him and engaged him in a conversation, hoping to find out from him the residence of Mr. Drah. As the conversation dragged on, I began to see Dr Afari-Gyan in a new light. He was not only a progressive intellectual; he was also pro-Nkrumaist and not hostile to the revolution.

“I steered the conversation in the direction of the unfolding transition to constitutional rule and his views seemed to echo those of the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC).

“I aborted my trip to locate Mr. Drah’s house, turned back, and reported to Captain Tsikata’s Office the next day. The rest is history,” Prof Ahwoi wrote.
