The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) Peter Boamah Otukunor, has expressed dissatisfaction at the organization of the ongoing funeral of the late President Jerry John Rawlings claiming it as been poorly organized.
He posited in an interview with Komla Adom of TV3 after Filing past the remains of Mr.Rawlings at the Accra International Conference Center on Monday, January 25 that NDC could have done a better job had the government involved them in the planning of the funeral activities.
He revealed that the government deliberately left the NDC party in the dark in relation to the preparations towards the funeral leading to the state it is now.
“We would have wished to honor Rawlings in a more, better and greater, more friendly and inclusive way than what we have seen the government lead us to. There are few problems with family and government, and the government deliberately and consciously excluding the NDC, a political party that he founded.”
“Some of us are a reflection of what he stood for, and so we are in deep sorrow, we are very sad. We think that the nation has lost greatly, some of us have lost very greatly.
“We are inspired and consoled in the fact that Rawlings left us something, an unfinished business, an unfinished service to the nation which we have to continue.
