Former President Mahama noted that it was difficult for him and other members of the party to come to terms with Rawlings’ death.
He promised to ensure the principle of the late former President Rawlings was still chalked in the political history of the party and Ghana.
It is difficult to come to terms with your shocking exit. But you’ve always been unconventional and acted on your own terms. The rest of us your comrades are left to mourn you.
But beyond mourning your departure, we have a duty and responsibility to ensure that your person and your principles receive their deserved place in the history of Ghana.
Leader of the Revolution, Founder of the 4th Republic and Midwife of the longest period of democratic governance in history and nobody can take that away.
Fare thee well, boss,” he said.
The family of the deceased gave the NDC Presidential Candidate an opportunity to sign the state book of condolence on Monday.
Meanwhile, Nana Addo and his entourage who visited the family of Jerry John Rawlings at Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings’ residence were given access to the Book of Condolence.
It was closed after Nana Addo’s condolence which led the NDC party big men to be thrown out.
