Farewell Kofi Annan (former United Nations Secretary-General).
Sad moment as African and world leaders joined Ghanaian President Nana Aakufo-Addo to bid farewell Kofi Annan.
He passed away in Switzerland on Aug. 18.
Kofi Annan was a man of integrity and his death came as a shock to world bodies.
Among the leaders at the state funeral organized by the prestigious government of Ghana were:
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire, Julius Maada Bio of Sierra Leone, and General Olusegun Obasanjo.
So sad; in his tribute, Ghanaian President Akufo-Addo described Annan as charming, cosmopolitan, elegant, eloquent, and gentle-mannered.
“He was a modest polyglot, proud African, peacemaker, quintessential diplomat.
These words are still inadequate to capture the fullness of the personality of Kofi Annan.
One truly iconic figure of modern times. He was so relevant to the society to a point of having his name across the globe.
OH ! farewell to Kofi Annan.
Ghanaian president later added that Annan had given him sensitive and deeply appreciative advice when he took office as president of the Republic of Ghana.
