The late president John Mills will no longer be buried at the Flag Staff House as initially planned.
A statement issued on Thursday and signed by the Chairman of the Funeral Planning Committee Kofi Totobi Quakyi says the late Ghanaian leader will be buried at a “specially designated place in between Castle Drive and Marine Drive Accra.”
The place located just around the Osu Castle will subsequently be developed into a Presidential Mausoleum, the statement added.
The date of burial is Friday, August 10, 2012.
The decision was taken after thorough consultation with the family and on the recommendation of the Funeral Planning Committee.
