President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said Africa will miss a former President of Ghana, Jerry Rawlings, who died at the age of 73.‎

Buhari spoke in statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, titled, ‘President Buhari mourns Jerry Rawlings, says great loss to Africa’.

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari sends heartfelt condolences to government and people of Ghana over passing of the country’s former President, Jerry Rawlings, 73, affirming that the entire African continent will sorely miss the sterling qualities of the great leader.

“President Buhari believes the passion, discipline and moral strength that the former Ghanaian leader employed to reposition his country over many years continue to reverberate across the continent and beyond.

“The President notes, with commendation, the unique role the former President played in strengthening political institutions in his country and Africa, stimulating the economy for sustainable growth, and vociferously championing the African cause by urging many leaders to work towards interdependency on the global stage, especially in areas of competitive advantage.

“President Buhari joins family, friends and associates of the former Ghanaian leader in mourning his departure, assuring that the ideas that Rawlings postulated, particularly for development in Africa, and his sacrifices in working in various countries as an envoy for peace and democracy will always be remembered.

“The President prays that the almighty God will grant the Ghanaian leader eternal rest, and comfort all his loved ones.”
