Former Vice President of Ghana laid to rest

Thousands of mourners thronged the Independence Square on Sunday 18th November to bid farewell to their departed former Vice President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama, who passed away on Friday 16th November 2012.  The mortal remains was conveyed from the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital clad in the national colours to the venue.

Members of the opposition New Patriotic Party, under whose ticket he served as a Vice President were there in their numbers to mourn their departed fellow.
His body was later flown to Tamale, his hometown in the Northern Region where he was buried in a grave dug in the center of the compound of one of his homes at Kalpohini Estates.

He was a man of few words, but full of action.

May he rest peacefully in the bosom of Allah.

Fare thee well.
