Whilst paying tribute to the fallen statesman, they also shared memories that will forever remain with them.

Speaking to GhanaWeb’s Joel Eshun, some of these persons who sell their wares in the area noted that the transformation of the space into a public parking space in Accra, now known as Rawlings park, is one thing they will always appreciate about the Former President.

His zeal to take part in communal labour and his participation in Ghana’s Independence Day celebrations were also cited as some of their most cherished memories of Mr. Rawlings.

“He led a number of the youth to distill the gutters in Accra when they were choked,” A driver said.

Another stated:” I liked him for his zeal and effectiveness during Independence Day celebrations.”
