Ghanaian actor Van Vicker says he wants to walk in the footsteps of former President Jerry John Rawlings.

At the premier of ‘Damaged Goods’ a play by Uncle Ebo White, Mr. Vicker said the founder of the National Democratic Congress is one loved by many for his charisma and body language.

“I think Papa J is one of the greatest leaders Ghana has ever had. The way he speaks… He can sell you pig in a bag. The media just love his utterances. This is a man whose presence alone says a thousand words.

“Without saying a single word, he appears and he has said so many things by just looking at him. Can I say I want to be like him? He inspires me in so many different ways. Who knows? I’m walking in your footsteps.”

The actor on the 70th birthday celebration of the former president said he has fallen in love with his personality and whishes to follow his footsteps.
