Lt. Jerry John Rawlings deserves a befitting state that will on reflect his simple, ordinary and magnanimous lifestyle.
Speaking at a vigil held at the NDC’s Headquarters for the late President, Rawlings on 15th, November 2020, he emphasized that, “The NDC, which is Jerry John Rawlings’s living legacy, shall honour him by participating in his funeral and burial activities. It would be unconscionable, and an indelible blot on the conscience of NDC not to honour our FOUNDER by not playing key activities and roles in his burial ceremony.”
He added that the NDC in consultation with his family, allied family, and Anlo/Volta traditional rulers, shall demand full participation in the pre-burial, and burial arrangements.
