The Presidential Press Corps has extended its “deepest condolence” to President John Dramani Mahama on the passing of his mother Tuesday night.
“The group is saddened with the passing of Hajia, and grief with the first family on this loss,” a statement issued and signed by the Secretary of the Corps, Edward Kwabi said.
“It is our firm belief that the soul of Hajia Abiba Nnaba will rest in eternal peace as she is laid to rest,” it added
Hajia Fatima Abiba Nnaba will be buried in Busunu in the West Gonja District of the Northern Region, a close member of the family told 3News.
The confirmation puts to rest controversy over where Madam Nnaba would be buried.
The people of Bole wanted the president’s mother to be buried at her matrimonial home but the Busunu Wura, Mahama Nugbaso II, demanded her interment at her paternal home.
The decision was left to the children including President Mahama to take.
