The final funeral rites of the late President Jerry John Rawlings has been put-off indefinitely.
The funeral preparations had initially been planned for December 20, 2020.
But issues raised by some of the families had made President Nana Akufo-Addo allow the family to solve all other issues regarding the customary rites and select a suitable date for the State to join in aid the departure of the late statesman.
However, a directive by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration to the international community and diplomatic missions showed a change in the schedule.
“…Due to unexpected circumstances, the funeral will not be held from 20th December 2020 as planned,” the statement read.
It further stated that “the new date for the funeral will be communicated in due course.”
Mr. Rawlings died on Thursday, November 12, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra after a short illness.
