The date for the funeral rites for the NDC Founder was earlier scheduled for Wednesday, December 23 2020.
However, a statement from the Office of the Former President Rawlings has indicated that his funeral rites will not come off as earlier scheduled but the reason was not given.
“The Office of former President Jerry John Rawlings informs the general public that his funeral will no longer take place on Wednesday, December 23, 2020
“A new date will be communicated to the public in due course,” the statement reads
However, according to reports, concerns raised by the Awadada of the Anlo State, Agbotui and Allied family had caused President Akufo-Addo to allow them to settle all outstanding issues regarding the customary rites and select a suitable date for the state to join in facilitating the departure of the late statesman.
Former President Jerry John Rawlings died on Thursday, November 12, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra after a short illness.
