These comments point to the pain and distress some Ghanaians endured during the military regime engineered by J.J Rawlings.
Rawlings was appointed the head of the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) by the revolting Junior military officers to run the country until the ongoing election was completed in 1979.
He handed over power to Dr Hilla Limann in September 1979 but overthrew Limann again on 31 December 1981.
In spite of his shortcomings during the formative years of Ghana’s political system, Rawlings charisma and love for his people were unmatched and it goes without saying that Ghana has indeed lost a great man whose name will forever be remembered.
