Former Attorney General, Martin Amidu on Tuesday joined founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Jerry John Rawlings and other cadres of the party to light the perpetual flame to commemorate the 34th anniversary of the June 4 revolution.
Mr. Amidu who has written a series of letters criticizing the last NDC government has not been in the news for some time. The ceremony which was held in front of the Flagstaff house was attended by other cadres including NDC Vice Chairman, Alhaji Huudu Yahya and some Ministers of state.
Speaking to Citi News, Alhaji Huudu Yahaya said the call by the founder of the party to join him light the perpetual flame came as a surprise.
“I am just a student of revolution, I am just a nationalist who will throw in anything no matter how much to contribute to the country to go on the right path and towards its destination; for I have been called to come and perform a duty, it's just part of a national and party duty which I have executed.”
The June 4th Revolution which was led by former president Rawlings in 1979 was reportedly sparked by corruption, bad governance, lack of discipline in the army and frustrations among the general public.
Mr. Rawlings who was a junior officer in the army was was then on for his first coup attempt in May 15, 1979.
