The mother of President John Dramani Mahama will be buried on Sunday, June 19, a family representative has confirmed to 3news.com.
Hajia Fatima Abiba Nnaba will be buried in Busunu in the West Gonja District of the Northern Region, the close member of the family added.
The confirmation puts to rest controversy over where Madam Nnaba would be buried.
The people of Bole wanted the president’s mother to be buried at her matrimonial home but the skin of Busunu, Mahama Nugbaso II, demanded her interment at her paternal home.
The decision was left to the children including President Mahama to take.
Meanwhile, a team of traditional and administrative leaders has left Tamale to formally engage the Busunu-Wura, Nugbaso II, and family members especially brother of Hajia Nnaba, Alhaji Imoro Dindana, for a successful burial ceremony. Hajia Nnaba died on Tuesday night after a short illness.
