LAGOS, Nigeria – It is easy to fall for the charms of the late former President, Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings.
You might either love him or loathe him but there was no denying that JJ Rawlings’s charisma endeared him to most.
Some of the people who have loved the former Ghanaian president are Nigerians.
Many Nigerians point to his revolutions in Ghana as being a turning point in Ghana’s fortunes – some Ghanaians would differ though.
Nevertheless, his passing has been felt by Nigerians who have started paying their tributes to JJ Rawlings who passed away today, November 12 at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
Leading the tributes, is the award winning musician, Davido:
RIP Jerry Rawlings🙏🙏🙏

A real one. A good leader of his people.
I was about 11 when I first heard him, his brilliance was fascinating, I saw someone who knew what he was talking about.
No corruption, no scandal.
