Following the decision to exclude the National Democratic Congress’ leaders in the programming of the funeral arrangements of their late founder and leader, His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings, it appears that, it has not gone down well with them as they always laments anytime they gets the opportunity to speak about the death of the late founder.
It could be recalled that, After the sudden death of Rawlings, the two main political parties, The NDC and The NPP ‘fought’ over Rawlings burial as the accused the NDC accused the NPP government led by Nana Addo Of “hijacking” the funeral of Mr Rawlings who died around 10:30am on Thursday, November 12, 2020 following their decision to have a state burial for the late former President who began the fourth Republic of Ghana.
Regardless the misunderstanding between the two parties, It was finally agreed that, the late former president would be given a state burial which commenced, Yesterday, January 24th and it’s expected to last for four days.,
However, the Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor, has noted that the ongoing ceremony for the late Rawlings would have been better organized if the NDC had been involved in the planning by the government.
According to him, himself and the NDC party would have wished to honour their late founder in “more better and greater, more friendly and inclusive way than what we have seen the government lead us do.”
He also noted that, during the arrangements of the burial ceremony for their late founder, “there were few problems with the family and the government, and the government deliberately and consciously excluded the NDC, a party that he founded . Otokunor lamented
Mr Otokunor with disappointment with what is currently ongoing said these in an interview with TV3’s Komla Adom after filing past the remains of Mr Rawlings at the Accra International Conference Centre on Monday January 25
