Emmanuel Teye Mensah, a former Member of Parliament for Ningo/Prampram, says the demise of former President Jerry John Rawlings is hard to take-in, adding that it took a while for him to believe that the former President was no more.
According to him, as a man who was still mourning his former boss, it was only appropriate he stayed indoors which explained his absence at the just-ended party’s vigil in honour of its Founder.
“I am very weak and in a state of mourning which is why I was absent at the vigil. There is no problem though. I just wanted to mourn my Founder indoors and nothing more,” he told Chief Jerry Forson on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem on Monday.
The vigil took place at the Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange in Accra.
Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama, his running-mate, Professor Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang, other party dignitaries, and some members of the Diplomatic Corps were present at the event.
