The Former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday reacted to the death of former President of Ghana, Jerry Rawlings.
The ex-Ghanaian President was said to have died of covid-19 related complications at the age of 73.
In his reaction, Atiku mourned Rawlings, describing him as African giant.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in 2019 election said that “Rawlings tenure as leader of Ghana remains emblematic with the restoration of that country. Even after office, he stood tall for African unity and renaissance.
“He represented a generation of leaders who gave their all for the rebirth of his country and Africa at large. I pray for a pleasant repose of his soul and console with the people of Ghana; his contemporaries and current leaders in Africa on the loss of a worthy patriot.”
