He revealed that, the reason why the late Rawlings became very fond of President Akufo-Addo was because of how he treated him.

“Rawlings told me President Akufo-Addo made him feel like Head of State. He sent him to many places to represent Ghana,” Mr. Hosiefe stated.

He also disclosed that, prior to the December 7 general election in 2020, the late Rawlings promised to support President Akufo-Addo’s second term bid.

“Jerry Rawlings supported Nana in the election for his kind gesture because he [Rawlings] is an honest man,” he stressed.

A distraught Mr. Hosiefe expressed his profound gratitude to President Akufo-Addo for honouring the memory of his friend, Mr. Rawlings.
