Take heart President – the former President consoles President Mahama

The former President, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings and his wife, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings joined hundreds of mourners on Thursday to commiserate with President John Dramani Mahama following the loss of his mother, Hajia Abiba Nnaba.

The former President and his wife accompanied by a large delegation which included their daughter and NDC Parliamentary candidate for Korle Klottey, Dr. Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings, cousins Michael Agbotui Soussoudis, Cann-Tamakloe and John Blagogee joined President and Mrs. Mahama and his family for a short Islamic ceremony at their family residence in Accra to bid farewell to Hajia Nnaba who passed away at the SSNIT Hospital on Tuesday.

The ceremony which was presided over by the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu, was attended by government officials, leading members of the NDC, NPP and other opposition parties as well as scores of sympathisers and party supporters.

Earlier on Thursday morning, the former President called on President Mahama at his official residence to privately extend his sympathies to him.

Hajia Nnaba will be buried at her hometown of Busunu in the West Gonja District today.
