This move, according to the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare is to help government plan a befitting ceremony for the late statesman.

Government’s request follows the agitations made by the Awadada of Anlo State on government’s declaration of December 23 as the burial date for the former statesman.

According to the Anlo State, the act was disrespectful as the former president died a chief.

The late former president of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings, died at the age of 73, on Thursday, November 12, 2020, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after a short illness.
