Outspoken USA-based Ghanaian filmmaker, Leila Djansi revealed some of the things that Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings did for the country.
Eulogizing the deceased statesman in a post on Facebook, Leila said he saved Ghana from hunger and corruption under Acheampong’s regime.
She also described Ex-President Rawlings as a legend and a dreamy god.
Leila Djansi wrote: “I’m not sure I understand or appreciate some of the Ghanaian journalists and their duplicitous commentary. JJ Rawlings had a good and bad side? What y’all mean? What bad side? His unmatched integrity? Leadership by example? It’s unhealthy to refer to people who enforce discipline, integrity, hard work and selflessness as difficult or bad.
“Rawlings SAVED Ghana from hunger and all the corruption wrought under Acheampong. He punished the guilty. If that’s what made him bad, well… Ghana will never ever see his kind again. Every plane that flew above our heads brought the chant “JJ Rawlings” from kids. He was a legend!
He was rare and he was such a dreamy god! Rest Well! You will be missed and never forgotten!”
