Duncan-Williams pays tribute to Ex-President JJ Rawlings

The General Overseer of the Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has paid a tribute to Ghana’s first President in the 4th Republic, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.

He said the former President always put Ghana first.

Mr. Rawlings died at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital yesterday at 10:10am after a short illness.

Archbishop Duncan- Williams in a statement said “I will remember him for putting Ghana first. Now is the time to focus on the good that he did and the contributions he made, to extend forgiveness and grace where he missed it. He himself had some deep regrets. The best contribution we can all make to his legacy is to unite as Ghanaians and put the country first: to build together as citizens of a community rather than divided peoples of parties and tribes. We should care less about self-enlargement and the things that divide us, as he did.”

He also described the late President as a leader who “dared greatly and will never be among those cold and timid souls who neither know great defeats or victories. Late President Rawlings was the personification of the Man in the Arena”.

Here is the full statement:
