Moree clan demands Amissah-Arthur body

Abusua Panyin Amanfo II says the late former vice president comes from a “home” and must be laid to rest there

The Anana Kojo Yenadze Ebusua of Moree in the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese District of the Central Region wants the body of the late Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur brought home for burial.

A head of the clan, Nana Sagoe Amanfo II, told 3news.com’s Central Region correspondent Kwame Kakarba on Monday that they will not allow their son to be buried neither in Accra nor in Cape Coast.

The immediate past Vice President of Ghana passed away last Friday at the 37 Military Hospital after collapsing at a gym.

He was rushed to the hospital but could not survive.

The late Amissah-Arthur [L] was vice to John Dramani Mahama
It is likely a state burial for him will be held in Accra.

But Abusua Panyin Amanfo II says “my son” comes from Moree and his body must be laid to rest there.

He explained that the living mother of the deceased former vice president and her late husband come from the coastal town but had to settle in Cape Coast, where they had six children consisting of two males and four females.

“I want people to know that [former vice president] Amissah-Arthur is not from Ogua,” he stated in Fante, “but rather from Moree and we want our son brought home for a befitting burial.”
