Ghana’s former President, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings has decried the failure of successive governments to seek lasting justice for the late Ya-Naa Yakubu Andani II who was assassinated in 2002.
At a meeting with the family of the late Ernest Debrah, former Minister in the Kufuor government, Jerry Rawlings expressed hope that as other eminent persons receive decent farewells after their demise, the late Ya-Naa will also receive justice and with that a decent final funeral rite.

“I am hoping and looking forward to the late Ya-Naa also seeing justice being done over the manner in which he left us so that his funeral may be carried out in a decent way for all of us to have the peace of mind the country needs and deserves. For his departure to have gone on through three administrations [governments] without seeing the necessary justice to ensure a decent funeral for him is a painful load that some of us carry and this is something we should all be thinking about. Let us do justice to what led to his departure and I believe there will be a decent funeral,” he stated.
