Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama says the impact of late former president Jerry John Rawlings on Ghana can't be underestimated.
Speaking at the vigil held in honour of President Rawlings, John Mahama said Rawlings made significant contributions to the country’s development and that impact cannot be ignored.
Among other things, he indicated that the late president had ties with Anlo chiefs and the National Democratic Congress and so their views must be taken ahead of the funeral.
The NDC flagbearer also said although some persons may have expressed their reservations about Rawlings, it is time to forgive and forget.
Former President Jerry John Rawlings passed away on Thursday, November 12 at 10 am.
The 73-year-old is said to have died after he contracted Covid-19 and was rushed to the intensive care unit of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.
