1.9438850The Office of Former President Jerry John Rawlings has explained that he called on President John Dramani Mahama at the Flagstaff House on Tuesday June 28, 2016 for a pre-arranged meeting in the company of four persons.

A statement signed and issued by Mr Kobina Andoh Amoakwa from the Communications Directorate of the Office of the former President said the four persons included two Kenyan youth development experts.

It said the two parties held fruitful discussions on issues pertaining to collaboration on development opportunities for Ghanaian youth, with the support of the government of Ghana.

Also on the agenda was a discussion on serious challenges facing some sectors of the aviation industry.

Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings did exchange brief pleasantries with Vice-President Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur after his scheduled meeting with President Mahama.

The statement explained that the meeting was not a surprise visit and matters concerning the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the 2016 elections were not on the agenda or discussed.

It therefore asked members of the media and the general public to ignore any other reports on the matter.
