Formerly conjoined twins, Lydia and Linda Awui, have called on former President Jerry John Rawlings to thank him for his kind support in ensuring that the bill for their surgery, aimed at separating them, was taken care of.
The identical twins were conjoined at birth and were separated at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in 1999, three months after their birth.
Accompanied by their parents, Eunice and Benjamin Awui and the delegation thanked Mr Rawlings for intervening to ensure the cost of the surgery was taken care of when he was President in 1999.
The twins and their parents presented the former President with a plaque and adorned him with beads to express their appreciation for his support.
Lydia and Linda, who live in Odumase Krobo, have led a generally healthy life since their separation.
The twins recently completed their secondary education at Akwamuman Senior High in Akosombo and are hoping to study medicine at the university.
