The Member of Parliament for the Lower Manya constituency has apologized profusely to former President Rawlings for spreading inaccurate information about the recent meeting between some Volta Chiefs and the ex President at his Ridge residence.

The outspoken MP in several interviews on radio stated that ex President Rawlings insisted during the meeting that the General Secretary of the ruling NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, must be sacked and also wants President Mills to retrieve the GH¢51 million judgment debt paid to Alfred Woyome.

He claimed that Ex President Rawlings had indicated that the removal of the General Secretary among other conditions would ensure a speedy return to the President Mills campaign team for the 2012 elections.

But, in a sharp volte-face during an interview on Accra based Radio XYZ, Hon. Teye Nyaunu admitted that his earlier claims were not the case as no such demands and suggestion were made at the said meeting and apologized for any inconvenience that his initial assertion might have caused the Ex President.

He said the founder rather maintained his positions that the values and principles of the party have been destroyed.

Mr. Nyaunu however dismissed claims that he was apologizing after having pressured by the former first family adding that he made a mistake and want Ghanaians to pardon him.
