The announcement was made by President Nana Akufo-Addo following a meeting with Annan’s family. Annan, a Ghanaian national and Nobel peace laureate, died on Saturday at the age of 80 after a short illness.

Kofi Annan’s death is another loss of an icon, advocate and a voice. He was a Ghanian statesman who scaled heights in his lifetime.

In a time when the world and Africa are facing turbulent times and a myriad of problems, one can only hope that these words of wisdom from him will mean something to the living.
