Gov't yet to decide burial site for Prez Mills

As part of the on-going consultations to build a national consensus on the funeral and burial arrangements for our late President, His Excellency Prof John Evans Atta Mills, the Funeral Planning Committee (FPC) on Wednesday visited and held discussions with the leadership of Parliament, the National Chief Imam, the Chief Justice and the Council of State.

A statement issued by Deputy Minister of Information James Agyanim Boateng said the FPC briefed them on the proposed funeral arrangements and used the discussions to seek their opinions on an appropriate resting place for President Atta Mills.

After a series of consultations, the proposed burial sites have been narrowed down to the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and a location within the old Flagstaff House.

A formal announcement of the entire programme is expected to be issued later.
