A former federal lawmaker in Nigeria who represented Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, has joined a lot of African leaders to mourn the death of John Jerry Rawlings, an erstwhile president of Ghana.
Recalling the laudable attributes of the late Ghanaian leader, Sani stated that Rawlings was indeed a revolutionary who symbolized courage and conscience.
The former senator noted that Rawlings did not just bring change to his homeland, he also inspired it across Africa.
In his honest opinion, Sani believes the continent has lost a true illustrious son who was an unapologetic pan Africanist.
"Jerry Rawlings; Africa has lost a great son, a patriot & a revolutionary. Rawlings symbolized courage & conscience. He was an honest man & an unapologetic pan Africanist.
"He brought change to Ghana & inspired change across Africa. Rest In Peace & rise in glory JJ."
Earlier, a former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo sent a condolence message to the people of Ghana over the death of Rawlings, an ex-president of the country.
Obasanjo in a letter to the president of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, said Rawlings will be missed for his exemplary leadership across Africa.
According to a statement from his special assistant on media, Kehinde Akinyemi, on Thursday, November 12, Obasanjo praised the former leader for the contributions he made to governance.
"President Rawlings will be missed for his exemplary leadership across Africa but particularly for his contribution to nation-building in the Republic of Ghana where he served, first as the Military Head of State of the country from 1981 to 1992 and later as a democratically-elected President from 1992-2000..."
