The remains of former Ghanaian President Jerry John Rawlings were laid to rest in Accra Military Cemetery on Wednesday after a funeral ceremony at Ghana Independence Square.

In his eulogy, current President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo described the former head of state as a charismatic, energetic, and courageous man.

“It is for good reason that his famous ideals of probity and responsibility, often cited and for which he has invested a large part of his political life, are enshrined in the Constitution of the Fourth Republic”, he said. declared.

According to him, these ideals, together with the Ghanaian motto “Freedom and justice”, constitute the fundamental principles of the social order on which Ghana must develop.

Mr. Akufo-Addo added that the remarkable advances made by the country “under the leadership of Mr. Rawlings will remain engraved in the hearts of many generations to come”.

“History, ultimately, will be generous with him and will render a positive verdict on his contribution to the evolution of our nation and to the rooting of its culture and its democratic institutions,” he said in his funeral oration.

The President reiterated his desire to name the University of Development Studies in honor of the late Mr. Rawlings for his role in founding it.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC), a political party founded by the former president, hailed the excellence of its leadership, “which culminated in Ghana’s long period of political stability.”

“He hated the exploitation of ordinary people by powerful and wealthy people. He was dedicated to inclusion and creating structures for everyone to participate in governance. This led to the founding of structures that allowed ordinary Ghanaians to participate in the administration of the country, “according to the NDC.

Mr. Rawlings died in the Ghanaian capital on November 12 at the age of 73 from a short illness.
