NDC flagbearer, Prof Mills, has fired his own salvo at critics who brand him a poodle of his party's founder, Jerry Rawlings.
He charged that former President Rawlings could not give him marching orders.
Prof Mills was reacting to a recent publication in the “Daily Guide” newspaper that the ex-President sacked him from the Adae Kese festival in Kumasi at Apam in the Central Region.
“Rawlings has never and can't even dictate to me” he confessed.
According to him, Rawlings has so much respect for him that anytime the former President wants to suggest anything to him, he begins with “I beg you sir”.
“We respect each other very well” he stressed furiously, adding that after all the Chairman of the erstwhile PNDC was five years his junior at school.
