President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has commiserated with the government and people of Mali over the death of the country's immediate former leader, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.
Keita, who was toppled in 2020 in a military coup, died last Sunday at his home in Bamako, after an illness. He was 76.
In a statement addressed to the Head of the Transitional Government of Mali, Colonel Assimi Goita, President Akufo-Addo said he was saddened by the death of the ex-president.
“The late former President will be remembered as a respected Statesman of Mali and the Ecowas region. His demise is a sad day for the people of Mali and the ECOWAS Community.”
“On behalf of the people of Ghana and the ECOWAS Community, and on my own behalf, I extend deep condolences to you, the people of Mali, his widow and family”, he said in the statement.
Keita was elected president in 2013. He was re-elected in 2018 only to be ousted in a military coup in 2020.
