The Presidential Candidate of the All People’s Congress (APC), Dr. Hassan Ayariga, has admonished on Ghanaians to put their difference aside and mourn the former president, JJ Rawlings as a national hero.

According to him, although some people may have qualms with the late Former President, it was prudent to put such reservations aside and as a country mourn the loss of his life.

Dr. Ayariga, in a statement on Friday to  commensurate with the family of the late Former President said he received the sad news of Mr. Rawling’s death while on a campaign tour in Offinso in the Ashanti Region.

“I have received with sorrow the sad news of the demise of our father, my friend, our former President His Excellency Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings. My campaign team and I were in Offinso in the Ashanti Region when my wife drew my attention to the sudden passing on of our former President.” He said.

He continued that “We the family of Dr. Hassan Ayariga and the entire leadership of the All People’s Congress send our condolences to the immediate family of Former President Rawlings, Her Excellency Nana Konadu and the children.”

Similar to the move by flag bearers of other political parties, Dr. Ayariga has suspended his campaign tour in the Ashanti Region, saying “the late Former President has left a vacuum that no one can ever replace.”

The first President of the fourth Republic of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings, died at 10:10am on Thursday, November 12, 2020, at the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital where he was receiving treatment after a short illness.

It has been reported that he was diagnosed with Coronovirus but it has still not been confirmed if that was the cause of his death.

He was 73 years old.

History has it that the former ruler seized power twice via military coups.
