In our previous post, we published that the funeral rites were scheduled to come off on December 23, 2020, following a press statement released by James Victor Gbeho, the Head of Funeral Planning Committee on Monday November 30.
A new press statement coming from the office of the late former president released today, Thursday, December 17, say otherwise, indicating that “a new date will be communicated to the public in due course.” signed by Kobina Andoh Amoakwa.
This new development comes weeks after a press statement released by James Victor Gbeho, the Head of Funeral Planning Committee on Monday, November 30, pleading with the presidency saying that Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings was not only a former President of Ghana but a Chief of Anlo under the Title of (TORGBI NUTIFAFA I). Which is meant to ensure that the customs of the Anlos and the right procedures are duly respected because Ex. President J.J comes from a highly respected family and has lived up to that reputation and must be accorded that due respect and honour.
