Jerry Rawlings Dies Of COVID-19 Disease by Ecstasy154(m): 1:31pm On Nov 12, 2020
Former President Jerry Rawlings of Ghana has died from complications of COVID-19.

The Cable gathered that the ex-president died at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, capital of Ghana, on Thursday morning.

A military ruler, who later joined politics, Rawlings ruled Ghana from 1981 to 2001.

He led a military junta until 1992, and then served two terms as the democratically elected president of Ghana.

A flight lieutenant of the Ghanaian Air Force, Rawlings first staged military coup as a young revolutionary on May 15, 1979, five weeks before scheduled elections to return the country to civilian rule.

When the coup failed, he was imprisoned, publicly court-martialed and sentenced to death.

After initially handing power over to a civilian government, he took back control of the country on 31 December 1981 as the chairman of the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC).

He then resigned from the military, founded the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and became the first president of the Fourth Republic.

He was re-elected in 1996 for four more years. After two terms in office, the limit according to the Ghanaian constitution, Rawlings endorsed his vice-president John Atta Mills as presidential candidate in 2000.

Hw was born on June 22, 1947.

He has cult following in Ghana and is loved over there. A good orator and one many Africa leaders should look up to. Painfully not long ago I think less than one month ago, he arrived like this in the video to bury his mum.
Rip his Excellency.

O my God!
Jerry Rawlings is gone....
Condolences to the Ghana people and His Family..

Life! Life! Life!
There is nothing in this life oo..
No matter who you are, what you have or whatever, Death will Humble you.

In this Privileged life that we have , Humble yourself before God, live according to His way and whenever you are called home you go peacefully and in Glory..

We all are Nothing but mere toys in God's Hands..

Most Important is to understand that irrespective of the Number of years we live and our accomplishments here on Earth, if we Die without JESUS Christ, it is a Waste of Existence..
