Award-winning Boxer Isaac ‘Royal Storm’ Dogboe has praised the valour of his chief supporter and promoter former President Rawlings regarding the circumstances under which the 31st December revolution happened and how he steered it, MyNewsGh.com has learnt.
According to him, Mr Rawling deserves credit for Ghana’s democracy and the stability it is enjoying.
If there was one single person who believed in the career of Dogboe and envisioned for him to be a world title holder then the first and last name that easily comes to mind is the former president, Jerry John Rawlings.
The former president has been a staunch supporter and cheer leader of the talented boxer. Mr Rawlings has never missed any of Dogboe’s fight in Ghana, and promotes the boxer heavily.
Rawlings said of Isaac Royal Storm Dogboe: “Dogboe now has the responsibility of carrying on from where Azumah Nelson left off. Let’s give him all our support, give him good fights to ensure that he captures the world featherweight champion.”
During the 37th anniversary of the 31st December Revolution in Ashaiman in Accra where Mr Rawlings invited Isaac Dogboe to speak, he enchanted the crowd with his ”neho” chant before proceeding to give a rousing speech.
“It took a revolution to put Ghana where it is at today. The people cried for change, God heard them and He sent a deliverer.
A man who is known by many names…ñwoli dzangla, little Jesus and so on…
Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings, the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), led a successful Revolution with a handful of individuals to restore democracy, stability and peace to our country Ghana.”
