The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has promised to pay Net2 cameraman’s funeral expenses.
The deceased Mohammed Ashiley Yakubu will be buried today October 10, 2017 according to Islamic custom.
According to the President, the least he can do for the deceased who worked for him is to foot his funeral bills.
The President eulogised the deceased who died in the Atomic Gas explosion in his attempt to capture the tragedy describing him as ‘a young intelligent man’.
“When such incidents happen it is beyond human understanding but God knows why he allows such things to happen. I can only console you in this painful moment. Mohammed is a young intelligent man whom I knew personally and remembered so well when he joined us for a trip, and God knows why he came for him in this painful manner.
‘Since he worked for the presidential press corps, he worked for me and so the least I can do is to cater for everything as far as the burial of this young man is concerned,” the President said.
