    Remembering JJ

    JJ would push the throttles forward to military power and beyond into maximum afterburner and then pop the brakes and the huge jet would lurch forward in devastating acceleration and we're off and rolling into the right turn passing the thousand-foot mark. We would climb through the last of the morning fog and clouds. I would pull out the vertical, as we load up pass 3 Gs, my G-suit constricts urgently around my legs and queasy gut. The effort would cause sweat to pour into my eyes and then I would try to look at your husband who would be grinning in my discomfort. We would get to zero, then negative G as we roll inverted across the top. A half roll and everything's right-side-up again as we scream down towards our set-up altitude. Your husband would allow the jet to slip close to Mach 1 and we would no doubt be rattling some speed to the edge of the envelope, probing the limit of the jet and our own limits. JJ would roll into another 180-degree snap-roll with burners cooking holding maximum sustain rate of energy turn, "hang on-turning inside for a shot, 4 G again". I would sink into the seat, sweat pouring from the helmet. This is no fun JJ. JJ would mutter to himself: "come on Antonio." No energy no nose up and hammerhead over and we would be heading home. Once home, I would pull out a pack of Marlborough from my patch pocket and toss a stick to Galagui(my name for JJ). We would smoke and talk about the mission we just completed. Atukpa and I will miss him greatly. We are the Anlo Boys of Sogbolisa. Sir, Goodnight my Brave Heart and Good's speed. To you Nana, we love you very much.

  • CTYO: 2020-12-05 14:55:04

    2008 I sat at the same stand at a Nations Cup match watched you watched the match for an entire half at awe staring at a great man. As a child, I cringed with fear of hearing your name. As a man I admire you. I don’t remember the last time I cried, but I cried uncontrollably when I heard of your passing. I never met you, and no wonder they called you junior Jesus. Well, that's a powerful controversial name for a mortal. God will understand and He will love you nevertheless. Live on JJ, live on. God willing Ghana will come to its senses and renamed that airport after you. You deserve it.

  • Martin Opoku-Ware: 2020-12-05 12:55:41

    I was very sad to hear the sudden death of you . I dearly adored you when you staged the June 4th coup by then I was a student. I have grown to see a kind of principled , dedication and devoted man to Ghana . May your soul Rest In Peace my dear ever love JJ

  • Benjamin Nana Essilfie: 2020-12-05 12:23:26

  • Maxwell Gomey: 2020-12-05 07:45:38

    I am still yet to heal from the shock. Your sadden demise has made me to start researching for how to redefine life. You were my only role-model. In fact, your death soon after your mother’s remains forever mysterious - but God knows better. My prayer is for God to grant you eternal rest. Your rescue of Ghana is what has placed it in good standing and shape in the global domain today. Prez JJ may your Gentle Soul Rest In Perfect Peace. You did the best that you could for Ghana and Ghanaians. You will forever be remembered by the good people Ghana.

    I'm sorry that I never got to meet President Jerry Rawlings. My deceased good friend Baba Kofi Ghanaba had mentioned him to me on various occasions and it was rumored that whenever the president wanted to smoke a joint, he'd go over to the Ghanaba complex to do so. My deepest condolences go to the Rwalings family and associates. Rest In Peace Sir Jerry Rawlings

    Big Brother John Jerry Rawlings, you indeed saved Ghana from a complete destruction from greedy and corrupt selfish idiot people. A lot of thanks to you and a great gratitude to Almighty God for blessing us with your presence in this nation of a lots of greedy and backwards corrupt idiots. Only the evil people of this nation can speak bad things against you. Rest in perfect peace.

  • PBK: 2020-12-02 19:31:40

    Boss, you inspired us during your tenure as president of the republic. A president who easily came down to the level of the people, entering trenches and taking off dirt, helping in laying rails, words cannot but describe your level of sacrifice which you exhibited. And oh! who would have forgotten your jovial nature? Your story telling techniques and "boom" speeches. You are gone but not forgotten. Rest Well, Boss! ALL CORRECT SIR!

  • Baba Moutawakelu, Rahman Family, Tema: 2020-12-02 19:03:40

    I heard the funeral dirges of Nkrumah’s passage sang mournfully and painfully on radio. It marked the end and beckoning, prophetically, for another such era. In answer, you truly came. You were the symbolic answer to the cry of a nation in the throes of growth. In 1982 at Tema Community One Community Centre, in your military fatigues, looking down from your height to my mum, myself and brother with my tiny sister strapped to her back, you asked if we could go back to our hometown since we had been ejected from our dwelling place with the death of my Dad, a janitor then with the Ministry of Health. Tears running down her face, my mum, an orphan, said she was born and bred in Tema in very difficult circumstances and had no inkling of her actual hometown. We had nowhere to live except the streets. Thoughtfully looking at us, you commanded Nkwantabisa to give us back that single bedroom and wished us well. That gaze of yours rested on us till we left the hall. The rest is history. Were we able to make it? Yes, Father, Uncle, we did. We made you proud. We walked because you talked. We went because you pointed. You smiled, over the years, because we brought you laurels achieved. My son, also named Kimathi, moves with our protected collective legacy. You’ll forever live in our hearts, our hero.
    Which era have you now ushered us into? With terrible pain in our hearts, we wish you had the breadth to speak. Nevertheless, your spirit, ever so refreshingly, bids us on. Our footprints and that of our generation will always be on the path you showed. For us as individuals, as generations, as a nation, as a continent, as the world, you lit your flames of candour, valour, humanness, integrity, servant leadership, purpose and sheer heroism. Nkrumah rested because you came. You were prophecy and cry of destiny, personified. Indeed, you were no less a child of destiny of the universe. We march on, never losing sight of that North Star, keeping to that path you showed, strewn with petals of eternal values, principles and valour. Sleep well, foreordained one. Rest in Peace, till we meet again.

Rest in peace your Excellency J. J Rawlings. God bless you for allowing yourself to be used by God in Ghana. One thing is certain, God rules in the affairs of man.

    Ghana , especially the youth and the children have lost a great man. My age group will never be consoled by anything for this lost. I remember when I was in primary one when J. J came to the Western region at Elloyin, Beyin ( Nzema )Where we waved the miniature flags to taunt J. J. I remember when we found it difficult to buy Akyeke 3cedis to go to school but suddenly reduced to 1 cedi making us spend just 3cedis on breakfast for three days going to school. Then I remember the sudden extension of electricity and bored hole water to our towns. He gave us hope , He gave us future , He showed us love. I remember his handshake I was fortunate to have in the lineup waving the flags and taunting the slogan J. J. In fact death is inevitable but this is one of the people I would spare if God should ask us to spare anyone. I am abroad now working which I confess was due to the dedication of our visionary and hero J. J. who introduced the J. S. S and the SSS that produced me. I cried my heart out upon receiving the shocking news of the lost. May God keep you at his right hand side and may your name be put in the book of life. Your demise came as a shock and unexpected. Till God himself bring you back to life again, Rest in perfect peace my dream maker.

How I wish I have the power to bring the dead back to life, I would definitely have exercised this power in your favour. Since I don't have that power I can only say rest well Papa and we would surely meet again in the next life. Eternal rest is what I finally wish for your soul

Deep down many hearts of Ghanaians we know what you have done. If nothing at all you have put an end to all coup d' etat and set Ghana on the right path.

    I can't forget your in-depth analysis of issues beyond our understanding. Your selfless efforts to fighting for the common Ghanaian on the street makes you a father for ALL, and self acclaimed father for all as some leaders pride themselves with. Papa J, your legacies will never be forgotten. You are a matchless and incomparable leader who just as Kwame Nkrumah has impacted the entire country. The human right activist, environmentalist, probity and accountability campaigner, real democrat, and army General fighting against corruption, we wish you farewell.
    Rest in Peace Papa J

  • Dominic E. Andoh: 2020-11-24 18:16:46

    Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings, (aka Papa J). He could give you his full attention for a few seconds and leave you with the feeling you mattered. This is the man with the quality you will recognize in very few individuals.
    In fact, it is emotional and profound. That is because people occupying powerful positions more commonly portray arrogance and impatience. It could be true such people are usually quite busy, which explains their limited time for kindness or small talk. That is the normal behavior you sort of expect.
    Whatever it was, J.J. Rawlings played his part. If for anything, I will forever remember him as the founder of the fourth republic of Ghana. Today, we are the beacon of the world and it was the starter of Papa J.

  • Ahmed Bedwei Majdoub : 2020-11-24 18:09:57

Only God knows why he decided to call you at this time of your life when you ought to have been resting. Fare thee well. Our father is waiting for you in heaven. You attended and celebrated his Funeral as if your were his first son. What a lasting impression. People underrated your intelligence and maturity but when I sat face to face with you for the first time, I realized how they were wrong. You did not become head of State and President by chance. You deserved it. Bye,Till we meet again.

  • Patrick Michel : 2020-11-24 16:47:27

    President Rawlings, rest in peace knowing that you have done your utmost best for your beloved country. I still remember my parents gathering around our Ferguson radio for the regular announcements soon after June 4th, and the constant playing of the theme song of the popular war movie "THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI", I later learnt at music school that the tune itself is also called "THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI". Later, I saw you at many functions and each time, I saw in your eyes the desire to move this country forward. That pure spirit of sacrifice made it normal for you to sleep under a temporary tent in the Afram Plains overnight. You have laid a solid foundation for the 4th republic and you will forever remain one of the two best known leaders of this country. It's hard to believe you are gone but I take comfort in the many legacies you left us. RIP big boss.

  • Emmanuel Addai: 2020-11-24 15:06:36

    Yes, it is mostly a good trait that human beings forget.

    So it is certain that after four decades a lot of spin and credence will be afforded those who wish to distort history.

    The achievements chalked by Ghana under your leadership is unprecedented. You promised writing you autobiography which never materialised.

    It is my hope that who ever takes up the mantle to write about you will do a greater job to preserve your legacy.

    May your Sour Rest in Perfect Peace.

    You were all we knew growing up. You came to Ho council to delivered message as a head of state in your military uniform that was the first time I saw you. I was very little, unable to get close enough to see you as the place was crowded with alot of people and had to be carried on the shoulders of my uncle. The second time I saw you was when Queen Elizabeth came to Ghana at Accra on state visit. This time around, I was a little bit grown, was at the front row so I was able to see you fully. The last time I saw you physically was in 2015 when you came to my work place at Matalan with the financial minister under president Mahama's administration at Cricklewood London.
    I was very shocked and saddened at the news of your death because when I meet you in London, you were very quiet and I was unable to say what I am saying now thinking I will tell you another time. Although I think you have gone so soon, I guess you have played your part.Thank you my hero, Thank you Papa J, I still don't understand why you left us so early. You will surely be missed by most of us. Rest well my hero

    Kawbena Bedu you never get tired of your one way tribute? Kindly note that the people you mentioned as allegedly killed by Papa J were not the only people leaving in gjana at the time. The question you need to ask yourself is why was it that its only your relations were the people dealt because of thievery and that thievery is still on going . God will deliever this Country from your wickedness.

Your father and your husband was the greatest person in Africa, Ghana, and the world. The best president and great leader with great and good heart and wisdom. You should all be proud and continue to pray and not to forget that, it would be hard to get such person as a president.
    He was honest, kind, dedicate his life for Ghana and helping poor and equality, fighting corruption. May his rest in perfect peace in heaven, and may God continue to protect you all, and God bless you all!
    You are going to be a great leaders and please prepare to be that, God would guide you through and God would make you all succeed and success.!

    Passing away the greatest man, the most honest man, my man of J. J. Rawlings is big and complete loss to Ghana, Africa, and the rest of the world, particularly, the nations that calls for equality, helping poor, and stopping corruption. It is very sad that, the great man was not flew out for treatment, and allowing him to waist the few time in the hospital bed where treatment were ineffective. we should stop fighting after his death because, the government, the party, and responsible officials and people who should have done the right thing are to blame.
    He was a leader who continue to preach justice, bold, respected for all, and hopping to see Ghana become a better country and a greater nation. As a President he did more than any president in Ghana and his presence and resounding words of probity and accountability echoes at all times for all people to follow. We must honor him now and protect his family he left to us in Ghana.
    May God bless him in heaven and may God protect the family he left behind. Fare thee well. May he rest in perfect peace! Amen!

    My wife and I were saddened to hear the sudden departure of Flight LT. JJ Rawlings, the stalwart leader and founder of our fourth republic. JJ loved his country, and his desire to better the lives of ordinary Ghanaians. Please note that our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Ghana and his family at this difficult time.
    Rest In Perfect Peace ! You will forever be missed.

    A mighty kind that served his nation in all integrity and the best of service under humility though may have passed this life, yet he lives on in our hearts. May God comfort his bereaved family and also all of our dear nation for his demise. A shining star and a lamp has been taken out of its place yet will we cry out unto the Lord. Till we meet again I say "ayeeko" for such a great legacy left behind. Papa Jay, we love you. Good bye ???? ??????
