The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) Deputy General Secretary, Peter Boamah Otokunor says, but for the fact that they have been exempted from preparations of Rawlings’ funeral, the NDC would have organized a better funeral for the former President.

The politician said this in an interview with the media after filing past the mortal remains of the founder of the NDC, Jerry John Rawlings’ body at the Accra International Conference Centre Monday 25th January 2021.

According to Peter Boamah Otokunor, the nation has lost greatly as many looked up to the former President Rawlings.

“Some of us are a reflection of what he stood for and so we are in deep sorrow , we are very sad. We think that the nation has lost greatly , some of us have lost very greatly .We are inspired that Rawlings left us something an unfinished business, an unfinished service to the nation  which we have to continue”.

“We would have wished to honour Rawlings in a more better  and greater , more friendly and inclusive way  than what we have seen the government  lead us to. There are few problems with family  and government , and the government deliberately  and consciously excluding the NDC , a political Party that he founded,” he added.

Former President of the Republic of Ghana and founder of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings, died after battling a short illness.
