Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the death of former Ghanaian President Jerry John Rawlings.
Rawlings in Accra on Thursday after reportedly contracting coronavirus.
Goodluck Jonathan after hearing the news sent his condolence to the bereaved family.
I extend my deepest condolences to the Government and people of the Republic of Ghana over the passing on of former President Jerry John Rawlings.
As Ghana’s leader under different dispensations, he acquitted himself as a soldier of the masses and crusader for social justice.
President Rawlings was a courageous statesman and great Pan-Africanist with strong views and drive for Africa’s renaissance and growth. He died at a time the continent needed his wisdom and experience to deal with challenging socio-political issues. May God Almighty grant his soul eternal rest.
