A lecturer at the Kumasi Technical University(KTU) Dr Samuel Afriyie has described late Former President Jerry John Rawlings as an institution the country should not forget his track records.
According to Dr Afriyie, Ghana could not have gotten to this level of development without the involvement of former President Jerry John Rawlings who raised the curtains of the fourth republic.
