A delegation from the Council of State, led by its Chairman, Nana Otuo Sereboe II, the Juabenghene, called on former President Rawlings and the Agbotui family on Tuesday, to commiserate with them on the loss of Madam Victoria Agbotui, mother of the former President.
In his message to the bereaved family, Nana Otuo Sereboe noted that the loss of a mother is a painful experience, stating however that, “though you have lost your biological mother, you have a very formidable mother in the person of my sister, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, who has stood by you and will continue to stand by you and we also support her to stand by you through thick and thin.”
Like President Akufo Addo, Nana Otuo Sereboe confessed that when he lost his mother he temporarily forgot he was a chief and wept like a baby. He recalled the former President sending the then Chairman of the Council of State, Alhaji Mumuni Bawumia, to mourn with him in New Juabeng.
“That action really touched my heart, so it is probably ordained that I should also mourn with you in the position that I honourably occupy as Chairman of the Council of State. We want to assure you that we will be with you in all the activities marking Madam Agbotui’s funeral. Take heart as the Lord is with you and will always be with you,” the eminent traditional leader told President Rawlings and his family.
Others present were the Graphic Communication Group led by its Managing Director, Ato Afful. The National Democratic Party, led by its General Secretary, Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong. Ambassador Dan Abodakpi, Stool Father of the Anlo State.
It was later confirmed that the funeral of Madam Agbotui will take place on Saturday October 24 after which the body will be conveyed to Dzelukope for interment.
