Former President John Mahama has mourned a former member of the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC), Major Boakye-Djan (Rtd) in a glowing tribute.

Taking to his Facebook page, he eulogised the deceased as a courageous soldier and an astute politician.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer recounted Boakye-Djan’s political activities and the role he played in late former President Rawlings’ administration.

“He was a member and played a vital role in the events leading to the establishment of the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council, chaired by the late Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings (Rtd.) in 1979.

“As a democrat, strategist, communications, and conflict resolution expert, he always left his audiences impressed with his razor-sharp mind and solutions-oriented approach to issues,” Mr Mahama eulogised.

The former President among other things said the late ARFC stalwart began the transformation and financial independence of the Ghana Meteorological Agency(GMA).
