All Flags are to fly at half-mast starting Monday August 20, for a week across Ghana and in all Ghana’s diplomatic missions across the world, in honour of the Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo gave the directive in a statement to express his condolences to the Wife and Family of Mr Annan.

He described the late Secretary General as the country’s greatest compatriot and a consummate International Diplomat who put Ghana in the limelight by the positions he held and through his conduct in the global space.

Mr Kofi Annan died at a hospital in Switzerland, Saturday morning after short illness. He was 80.

He served as the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations from January 1997 to December 2006.

Annan and the UN were the co-recipients of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize. He is the founder and chairman of the Kofi Annan Foundation, as well as chairman of The Elders, an international organization founded by Nelson Mandela.
