Albang Sumani Kingsford Bagnin Speaker of Parliament has said the late former President Jerry Rawlings was respected by foreigners than his nation .

According to him Jerry Rawlings died at a time democracy is in disaster and democracy of not only Ghana ,but the entire world was going through crisis at the time he died.

Speaking at a public lecture on the legacies of the Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), in Accra, Mr Bagbin said: “Jerry was respected more outside Ghana than in Ghana.”

He said “Jerry entered at a time there was no democracy and he worked towards building what the Blue Book describes as a true democracy.

“He exited at a time democracy is in crisis and that is a title of a book that I will recommend to all of you to read ‘Democracy in crisis’. It not only in Ghana but in the whole world. In fact, the supposed mother of democracy is also in crisis”, he said

He also said “We are inspired and consolation in the fact that Rawlings left us something an unfinished business, an unfinished service to the nation which we have to continue”

“So can we say that all he did, all he stood for has come to nothing? It depends on how we gathered here to carry on with the battle. Bagbin said
