President John Dramani Mahama has lost his mum, high-placed sources have disclosed to 3news.com.
The mother of the first gentleman of Ghana, Abiba Nnaba, died on Tuesday night, the sources said.
As a result, the ‘Accounting to the People’ tour, which resumed in the Greater Accra Region on Tuesday, has been put on hold.
Madam Nnaba was reported to have been on admission at the Trust Hospital in Accra.
She hailed from Busunu in the Northern Region of Ghana.
Confirming the passing of President Mahama’s mother on TV3’s New Day on Wednesday, Greater Accra Region Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Jospeh Ade Coker said the party will express its sympathies to its leader by paying a courtesy call on him.
Mr Ade Coker also confirmed that the president’s tour in his region of jurisdiction will resume after the special visit.
