Ghana’s former President, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings and his wife, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings joined hundreds of mourners on Thursday to commiserate with President John Dramani Mahama following the loss of his mother, Hajia Abiba Nneba.
The former President and his wife accompanied by a large delegation which included their daughter and NDC Parliamentary candidate for Korle Klottey, Dr. Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings, cousins Michael Agbotui Soussoudis, Cann-Tamakloe and John Blagogee and a host of others, joined President and Mrs. Mahama and his family for a short Islamic ceremony at their family residence in Accra to bid farewell to Hajia Nneba who passed away at the SSNIT Hospital on Tuesday.
The ceremony which was presided over by National Chief Imam, Sheik Nuhu Sharabutu, was attended by government officials, leading members of the NDC, NPP and other opposition parties as well as scores of sympathisers and party supporters.
Earlier on Thursday morning, the former President called on President Mahama at his official residence to privately extend his sympathies to him. President Rawlings was accompanied by his daughters Zanetor, Yaa Asantewaa and Amina.
Hajia Nneba will be buried at her hometown of Busunu in the West Gonja District on Friday.
