Former Ivorian President, Laurent Gbagbo has expressed his regrets that he did not have the opportunity to extend his gratitude to his friend and compatriot, President Jerry John Rawlings, before he passed away in November last year.

President Gbagbo who called on former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings and the family last Friday, said he looked forward to saying thank you to President Rawlings so much so that news of his loss came as a real shock to him.

“President Rawlings was the strongest amongst us his compatriots so it was difficult to believe he had passed. He was very authentic and real,” Mr. Gbagbo said.
