Jerry John Rawlings: the man who is an expert in working on an empty stomach

In June 1979, Ghana was at a cross road, another military group was attacked. A young Air force pilot who a few weeks ago, awaiting assassination, was rescued by his colleagues and was going to help the people to June 4th revolution. He would be part of the group who would revolutionize Ghana. His name, was Jerry John Rawlings.

He gave this quote while awaiting assassination:

“I am not an expert in economics, and I am not an expert in law. But I am an expert in working on an empty stomach while wondering when and where the next meal will come from. I know what it feels like to go to bed with a headache, for want of food in the stomach”
