The body of the late president arrived at the State House  and laid in the Banquet Hall on Wednesday morning for public viewing as the three-day State funeral kicked off.

United States Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, is part of dignitaries expected to grace today’s burial ceremony for the late Ghana’s president, John Attah Mills. Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan is also billed to join Clinton in Ghana.

Most activities in the city have been suspended and people going about their duties, were seen wearing red or black attires with red bands around their arms and necks.

Most of the people interviewed by the GNA said they were still trying to come to terms with the reality of the death of President Mills, and expressed the hope that his demise would unite Ghanaians more than before.

They said they were hopeful that being a kind hearted, peace loving and a good person, President Mills would be granted eternal rest with his Maker.

The spokesman for newly installed President John Dramani Mahama says Ghanaians are in mourning as the country gets ready to say a final farewell to the country’s late leader.

Spokesman John Jinapor said that despite the scheduled December election, all political activity has been suspended as a sign of respect as well as tribute to Mr. Atta-Mills.

“The planning committee has done a fantastic job… Normally when you are doing things for the first time you are likely to commit one error or the other…, but in general, I think that they have done very well.”
