Abigail Rawlings, a 52-year-old woman, her mother met her late father in his military days but he demanded to keep their relationship secret. In the course of their affair, her mother became pregnant but the former president denied responsibility.
She said that most of the external family members in the village of the founder of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) know her because she had been to them on several occasions.
In a new interview on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem show, Abigail disclosed she had wanted the former to be a staunch Christian before his death which took them by surprise.
Although people knew he was a Christian worshipped at the Holy Spirit Cathedral, Adabraka in Accra, Abigail said she wanted him to very proud and uphold the faith.
“All my efforts to see him were to preach the salvation message. I wanted him to have a great relationship with Christ because a lot of things were not going on well and I am convinced things could have gotten better if I had seen him,” she explained.
Abigail noted that even after knowing who her real father was, she couldn’t meet him till his demise.
