Rawlings To Address June 4 Durbar Monday

Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and leader of the June 4 uprising, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, will deliver the keynote address at a durbar of cadres and activists to climax activities marking the 39th anniversary of the uprising on Monday.



According to a statement issued by the anniversary planning committee, the durbar will take place at the Madina Social Welfare School Park on Monday from 10am.

This year’s celebration is under the theme, “Re-organising towards the core values”.

Other speakers at the event will include NDC party chairman, Kofi Portuphy, Dan Abodakpi, Fritz Baffour, Samuel Nuamah Donkor, Ebi Bright and Lawrence Lamptey.

Activities marking the 39th anniversary include a lecture which was held at the National theatre on Thursday May 31.

Monday’s durbar is open to all sympathisers of the June 4 uprising, the 31st December Revolution and members of the public.

Flt Lt Rawlings led a group of junior officers and men of the Ghana Armed Forces in an uprising against the then Supreme Military Council (SMC II) regime led by General F.K. Akuffo. The move was motivated by a desire to stem the scourge of corruption that had engulfed the country at all levels leading to a virtual breakdown of the economy.

Three months later the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) led by Rawlings handed over power to an elected government.
