The Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Ghana, Madam Jean Mensa has led a delegation from the Commission to console former President Rawlings and his family on Thursday.
Madam Mensa extended the condolences of the Commission and described Madam Agbotui’s life as one that was well lived and worthy of celebration. She expressed regrets that people like her did not have the opportunity to tap from the wealth of experience and knowledge of Madam Agbotui, before her demise.
The Commission’s message in the book of condolence read: “Our thoughts and prayers are with His Excellency [President Rawlings] at this time. May her soul rest in perfect peace and may her memory be a blessing.”
Madam Mensa was accompanied by her two deputies, Bossman Asare and Samuel Tettey as well as Madam Sylvia Annoh.
The mortal remains of Madam Agbotui will be laid to rest on Saturday October 24 in Dzelukope. There will be a pre-burial service at the Forecourt of the State House, Accra from 9am to 10.30am before the body is conveyed to Dzelukope through Vume, Savietula and thence to the family house before arriving at the Keta Senior High School Park. Interment will take place privately before sunset.
