The Ghanaian Embassy in Addis Ababa stated in a Note Verbale that it regrets to inform of the sudden passing away of the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Professor John Evans Atta Mills on Tuesday 24th July, 2012.
“A Book of Condolence will be opened at the Embassy from Wednesday 25th July to Friday 27th July, 2012 from 9 AM to 1 PM. Burial and funeral arrangements of His Excellency the late President would be communicated as soon as they are finalized,” the Note Verbale added.
The erudite Ambassador wrote on the Condolence Register: “The Government and the people of the Republic of Sierra Leone have learnt with shock and sadness of the passing away of His Excellency President Professor John Evans Atta Mills, whom he described as ‘one of Africa’s most illustrious sons.”
He further stated: “I hereby convey the hearth felt sympathy of the Government of His Excellency the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma and members of staff of the Embassy of the Republic of Sierra Leone in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to the bereaved family members and the Government and people of our sisterly country of Ghana.”
After Ambassador Bangali autographed the Book of Condolence, the next person who appended his signature to it was the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, His Excellency Hailemariam Desalegn.
