The Very Reverend Monsignor Roger Aboteyuure of the Navrongo-Bolgatanga Catholic Diocese has said Former President Jerry John Rawlings would have been voted for if he stood for the presidency again.

“Rawlings was charismatic and wonderful. We would have voted for Rawlings if he wanted to be President again. Because he did a lot and he was a great man….he was a model”, he revealed.

Commending the former first lady for her role in the development of women in the country, the renowned Catholic Priest said “the wife (Nana Konadu) is also a great lady who loves people. She came to Kongo and I organized a party for her. The women that came to eat, the meat she was supposed to eat she will collect and give it to the other ladies. She was not a selfish lady”

Former President Jerry John Rawlings died on Thursday 12th November 2020 at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital where he was on admission receiving treatment after he had been diagnosed of the novel coronavirus.
