Christian Atsu Twasam, a Ghanaian international football hero, is currently having his funeral ceremonies facilitated by the government.
Thousands of Ghanaians and dignitaries from across the world are expected to pay their respects to the late footballer’s body as it lies in state on the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
Christian Atsu passed away unexpectedly when he was found in the ruins of his Hatay flat that had collapsed after an earthquake struck Turkey on February 6, 2023.
On March 4, a week-long tribute for the late Black Stars player was conducted.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, and other government representatives are among the luminaries who are anticipated to attend the occasion.
