The funeral rites of the late vice president who passed away on 9th June 2018 is ongoing at the Accra International conference center before interment at the Military Cemetery at Burma Camp.
Some members of the fante community have expressed dismay over the venue of the funeral rites which in their view doesn’t befit a statesman like the late president.
Expressing their anger, they questioned why his funeral wasn’thel at the statehouse but the AICC . “Even the late singer Ebonys funeral was held at the forecourt of the statehouse so why wasn’t that of a former vice president”
Some also expressed worry over the unfortunate and untimely death of Fanti politicians who are able to rise to the top of the political ladder. Former vice president Ackaah, former president Attah Mills and now former vice president Amissah Arthur were some notable top level politicians who died after reaching the presidency.
