James Victor Gbeho, Ghana’s former Ambassador to the United Nation has rendered an apology on behalf of the Late President Jerry John Rawlings family and The Anlo Traditional Council.
This happened during a courtesy call on President Akufo-Addo to thank the government. The apology was tendered to the government because of the bad publicity in the lead to the funeral of the Late Jerry John Rawlings.
“We would like to ask you to forgive us for the kind of scene that we created throughout this funeral,” he told the president.
He added: “It was unfortunate that a few circumstances arose that caused the kind of intransigence. However, now that we have put it all behind us, we on that part will also try and achieve greater unity and harmony.”
“It was a complete misunderstanding of what state funeral implied,” he stated.
However, President Akufo-Addo on his part says he was neither upset nor worried about the issue.
“…I am not, in particular, upset or worried about what happened.”
He indicated his willingness to ensure unity among the families and also pledged his support to the family.
“I want to let you know that I continue to have a positive set of feelings towards him and his family,” the President assured.
According to him, “whatever has to be done to secure the security of the family, I am prepared to do my part.”
