Zanetor, the eldest daughter of the 1st President under the 4th Republic took to Facebook to laud her father for his selflessness and longevity.

She wrote: "Wow... Dad, I can't believe you're 70 already, yet you keep going so strong.

"Your selflessness and love for others always astounds me. Though sometimes I wish I could keep you all for myself, I take pride in the fact that the good Lord placed a special calling on your life - to touch the lives of multitudes across nations.

"Dad, I know that some day when the roll is being called, your name, J.J Rawlings will be inscribed in gold. I'm proud to be your daughter".

Dr Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings won the Korle Klottey parliamentary primaries of the NDC after garnering 2,403 votes to beat the incumbent Member of Parliament, Nii Armah Ashitey.

As the eldest daughter of former President Jerry John Rawlings, her membership of the NDC became the centre of discussions among party functionaries in the constituency from the very first day she made public her desire to contest the primary.
