John Dramani Mahama said, it will take a whole book to write a tribute to the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the late Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.
The Ex President who died in November last year, after a short illness, was laid to rest today in a colourful ceremony, at the Black Stars Square in Accra.
In attendance, were many dignitaries from different countries including our neighbouring West African countries. It would have been one of the worse days in the history books of Ghana, if the 2020 Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), a party which was formed by the late President Rawlings, did not attend the funeral although there were many rumours of the two not in good terms sometime ago.
Invited dignitaries, paid their last respect to the Ex President. Among the dignitaries that paid their last respect,was Former President John Dramani Mahama. Trying to express emotions, he wrote;
“Shocking and unexpected are words that both describe your dramatic entry onto the political scene of Ghana and also your silent exit from this world. It will take a whole book to write a tribute to a man whose life was so eventful; a man who has had a profound impact on several generations of Ghanaians.
All the world is a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts.
Rest in Peace, Boss.”
