The former President was speaking during a recent meeting with the 1995 Year Group of the Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast.
Ex-President Rawlings bemoaned the fact we are becoming immune to corruption, with people now unable to decipher the difference between right and wrong.
He said though there are many sensible people who see what is wrong they dare not voice it because of the partisan nature of our politics.
“You dare not criticise for fear your job or business might suffer. You don’t do this in a society. It creates a very polarised, very hostile situation. It creates tension and because no one ignites the volatile situation we don’t seem to realise we are living in dangerous times,” President Rawlings said.
