The remains of ex-UN boss Kofi Annan will arrive in Ghana on Monday, for the start of a three-day state funeral organised.
Ghana’s Information Minister-designate, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, said the body of the former UN boss will arrive on 10 September accompanied by his widow Nane Maria Annan, children, and some officials from the UN.
The remains will be received by the Ghana Armed forces and the President of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo, before it is moved to the Accra International Conference Centre.
His body will be laid to rest on Thursday.
Annan, who was the 7th Secretary General of the UN, died in Switzerland on 18 August, 2018.
