The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana, Madam Jean Mensa, on Thursday, October 22, 2020, led a delegation from the Commission to console former President Rawlings and his family.
Madam Mensa extended the condolences of the Commission and described the life of Rawlings’ mother, Madam Victoria Agbotui, as one that was well-lived and worthy of celebration.
