Reverend Christian Kwabena Andrews aka Osofokyiri Abosom has revealed where the late Rawlings wants to be buried when he dies.
According to him, in chit-chat with Rawlings before his demise, Rawlings informed him to see to it that he is not buried where statesmen are buried “so he can sleep in peace.”
Speaking to Hot93.9 FM, Osofokyiri Abosom said that, “The day I came to him, he told me he is praying I win and when I win and he dies, I should make sure where former Vice President Kwesi Amissah Arthur, President Evans Atta Mills and other statesmen were buried he should not be buried there. Somewhere different should be found for him to be buried.”
Osofokyiri Abosom continued, “he told me as I was laughing that if I do not know and I should win and he dies and I bury him where statesmen were buried, he will knock at my door whilst I am asleep at night and rush on me… So I think if all Ghanaians will listen to me, the body of late Rawlings should be sent to his hometown for a befitting burial. I will prefer that….but Rawlings did not disclose the exact place he should be buried.”
Osofokyiri Abosom of Ghana Union Movement [GUM] fame also shared fond memories of the late Rawlings – describing him as a man who thinks about the betterment of all and sundry.
