A member of the communication team of the opposition New Democratic Congress (NDC), Stephen Atubiga have said that the next NDC government will give late former President Rawlings a befitting burial.
Mr. Atubiga who was a presidential hopeful in 2020 made this known in a post he made on his Facebook wall.
According him, Rawlings who left behind a great legacy should not be wasted this way, that his remains should be displayed for at least some 100 years to come for the next generation to see.
Mr Stephen Atubiga also suggests relocation of the late former President’s body to the family’s agreed location in the Volta Region.
He again said the next NDC government may even raise a monument through the ministry of tourism so that Rawlings’ body be stored over there for tourist attractions.
