The Upper East Regional Secretary of the NDC, Donatus Akamugri has disclosed that the NDC will not bury the late Jerry John Rawlings until they win the 2020 Presidential race.
He made this comment while speaking at a vigil held in honour of Jerry John Rawlings in Bolgatanga.
According to him Rawlings’ spirit will not be in peace if he is buried when an election is just around the corner.
”Rawlings must be buried when we are in power. He will be held if our political party does not come back to power to bury him. If he had wanted to be buried, then he should have been called to eternity before the period of elections. We had three weeks to elections when he died. So, his soul will not rest in peace if we have to bury him when an election is just around. And he was eager to cast his vote for his party. And once he has passed away and the election has not been done, we believe that he wants us to win election and bury him. Left with us, if we don’t win election, Rawlings is supposed to be kept until NDC comes back to power and, then, we will bury him”.
He added that the party will surely come to office this 2020 because even his opponents now call him an angel and so Ghanaians will do Rawlings the honour by voting the party into power.
