Several other dignitaries filed past the body on Monday January 25.

For instance, the president of the World Wide Miracle Outreach Dr. Lawrence Tetteh, has said the late former president Jerry John Rawlings was phenomenal in Ghana politics.

He said this in an interview with Berla Mundi on TV3, in a tribute to the memory of the late former president on Monday January 25.

Dr. Tetteh said “President Rawlings is [phenomenal], and of course in every society and everybody’s life, we have the good times and the bad times. He was somebody who we needed at the time, in every dispensation I’ve always said that God gave us a demeanor of a particular leader that befitted the dispensation.

“The Rawlings era, the Kuffour era, the Atta Mills era, the John Mahama era and of course, the Nana Addo era, all of them their demeanor befitted the dispensation we lived in at the time for a purpose, I don’t think God made a mistake in any of the leaders he gave us in Ghana.”
