Within the embrace of revered grounds lie the resting places of notable individuals who once shaped the course of history in Ghana.

These sacred sites, like towering sentinels, bear witness to the legacies left behind by figures.

These monumental final abodes not only serve as tributes to those who have passed but are also living symbols of their profound impact in the society.

The final funeral rites of Sir John was held in June 3, 2021, at his home town, Sakora Wonoo, in the Kwabre East District of the Ashanti Region.

The former General Secretary of the governing NPP died on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, at the Korle Bu Teaching after COVID-19 complications.

Before the funeral service, a photo of the NPP bigwig's final resting place has popped up on social media.

The photo showed a painted walled and gated edifice looking like a 2-bedroom house with a huge picture of Sir John mounted on it.

Sir John, known in private life as Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, was born in 1957. He was a Ghanaian lawyer and politician.
