Former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings has explained why she refused to elope with her late husband, former President Jerry John Rawlings.

She said that on January 29, 1978, she and her childhood sweetheart, Rawlings, got married – a wedding she said remains a memorable day for her. But before that, he had asked her a very difficult question.

Nana Konadu wrote, “I recall, you wanted us to elope and get married; again it did not sit well with me, and I said no.”

“You very quickly told me you were just tricking me to see my reaction. Family was very important for me – that is all I knew. So, eloping without a wedding involving my family was out of the question for me,” she wrote.

Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings died on November 12, 2020, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra after a short illness.
