Former President John Dramani Mahama he’s asked party supporters to champion the principles, ideals, and success stories of the late former president, Jerry John Rawlings.
Mr. Mahama believes this would help preserve his status in Ghana’s political history.
He was speaking at a public lecture organised by the party as part of programmes leading up to the final burial rites for their founder.
“I dare say that with J.J’s passing the revisionists of our history will commence their work again to try and denigrate the history of his life and work. That is what I say unless those of us who knew him and worked with him document his life and works for posterity, then historians of the hunter will write it for us, ” he stated.
To him, the death of Mr. Rawlings presents them with a real test of boding among members of the party as because “now more than ever is when we should close our ranks to ensure the survival of our party and tradition.”
“The challenge that political parties face that makes the difference between success and failure is how you survive the passing of your founder,” he added.
