Madam Abiba Nnaba

Less than 24 hours after the death of Madam Abiba Nnaba, mother of President John Dramani Mahama, there is confusion over where to bury the old woman. The Chief of Busunu, younger brother to Madam Nnaba’s father has refused to allow the deceased to be buried in Bole which is the hometown of President John Mahama’s father E.A Mahama.

The Chief is currently in a meeting with a delegation from President Mahama father’s family led by the DCE for Damongo. He insists that because President Mahama’s father divorced Madam Nnaba along the line, it will be improper to allow the former’s family to bury Madam Nnaba in Bole, as against Busunu which is the latter’s hometown.

Kasapa FM’s Northern Regional Correspondent, Illiasu who’s currently at Busunu monitoring the meeting reported that several people are grieving over Madam Nnaba’s death, with sympathizers gathering at the family home. He added that there’s presence of police and Military officers to ensure a peaceful deliberation.

Madam Abiba Nnaba passed on Tuesday. She is survived by six children including the President. The family of Abiba Nnaba at Busunu in the Northern region is yet to be officially notified as tradition demands. Her body will be flown to Busunu from Accra today for burial in accordance with Islamic tradition.
