by The Ghana HIT

Professor Kojo Yankah, who is the former minister of state in Rawlings government has mourned the deceased former president of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings. He passed away on November 12, 2020, while receiving treatment at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

Speaking during an interview, Prof Yankah- said the retired Ghanaian president was strong and decisive. He insisted that he was capable of disciplining his close associates.

He said “Rawlings played a great role in consolidating the democracy of Ghana, but I want him to be reminded of the principles of probity and accountability that were introduced in our system when he led the June 4 uprising.

“I think he was a strong leader. People may have their own opinions but that was all part of his style of running affairs. He would not spare the rod, he investigated his own but he made sure at all times that all his people lived by his principles – honesty, transparency.”

“I must say, he did not tolerate corruption, he did tolerate indiscipline, he did not tolerate covering up of issues, he just wanted results and I think those principles should be his legacy.”
