The mortal remains of former United Nations Secretary-General, Busumuru Kofi Annan will arrive in Accra, Ghana on Monday, September 10, 2018, for a state burial.

The body will be accompanied by his widow Nane Maria Annan, his children and some executives of the United Nations(UN).

This was made known at a press conference in Accra on Wednesday, addressed by the Information Minister-designate, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.

Mr Oppong Nkrumah said President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), will receive the body on behalf of the people of Ghana.

Mr Kofi Annan died in Switzerland on August 18, 2018 after a short illness.

President Akufo-Addo last week proposed a state burial for the late international peace icon, to which his family readily agreed.
