NDC Gives Directive On Rawlings Funeral

A statement signed by its General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia urged all party members, sympathizers and loved ones to brace the occasion.

The statement released on Friday in Accra urged all branches, constituencies, and regions to begin the funeral activities for the of the party.

Below is the full statement:

The NDC Party is in deep shock following the sudden demise of our Founder Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings, Former President of the Republic of Ghana.

We honour the life of this bold, courageous and outspoken icon who was driven by deep love for his country and the downtrodden.

At a meeting of the Political Committee of the Party on Friday morning, we reaffirmed the Party’s commitment to celebrate the life of our dear Founder, and decided on the following:

a. Books of condolence will be opened at the NDC National Headquarters, Regional offices and Constituency offices;
b. Party offices will be draped in red and black, and party flags will fly at half a mast during our period of mourning;
c. A vigil will be held in Accra at the Obra Spot on Sunday, from 5pm till midnight.

The late President Rawlings lived a simple life and abhorred ostentation of any sort.

It is therefore the intention of the Party to organize funeral related activities in line with his long cherished ideals and the principles he stood for.

Accordingly, it has been decided that the NDC’s funeral activities for the Founder will begin immediately and continue through till his burial.

The Committee directs that all regions, constituencies and branches should organize appropriate funeral related activities at their various levels.

In pursuit of President Rawlings strong convictions of probity, accountability and transparency, the NDC will continue our fight to rid the country of corruption, nepotism and cronyism.

We will not take our eyes off the ball until our goal is achieved. We call on all NDC supporters and wells wishers of the Party to join us in celebrating the life of our great Founder and to honour his sacrifice for the nation.

Johnspn Asiedu, Nketia
General secretary
