President of the National House of Chiefs, Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi says the best legacy Ghanaians can bequeath to the memory of the late Former President Jerry John Rawlings is to ensure a peaceful general election next month.

He reckoned that once there can be only one winner in an election, losers in the upcoming polls should graciously concede, whilst the eventual winner must be magnanimous in celebrating for the peace and tranquility of the nation.

Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi stated this when he addressed the media after signing the Book of Condolence in honour of the Former President at the Accra International Conference Center.

The fifth day of the signing of Book of Condolence in honour of Former President Rawlings was designated to Heads of State Institutions and the general public.

President of the National House of Chiefs, Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi was accompanied by a retinue of chiefs including the Osu Mantse, Nii Kinka Duwuona and the Krowor of Manya Krobo Nene Sackitey.

Ogyeahoho Yaw Gyebi who is also the Paramount Chief of Sefwi Anhwiaso entreated the media to preach peace in the run up to the elections.

He said if the December polls turn violent, the legacy of the Former President will be eroded given that he risked his life to chart the country’s path to democracy.

Dr. Emmanuel Bombande

A Former Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration under the Mahama Administration, Dr. Emmanuel Bombande lamented what he called excessive partisanship of issues in the country, something the late President fought hard to avert.

The Methodist Bishop of Accra, Rev. Samuel Osabutey described the Former President as a down-to-earth person who saw leadership as service to mankind.

The Human Resource Manager of Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC), Nana Akua Korankye Sampa, extolled the virtues of the Former President describing him as an epitome of bravery, probity and accountability.

Personalities who showed up to sign the Book of Condolence include the MP for Wa West Joseph Yieleh Chireh and Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies Joseph Siaw Agyepong.
