According to vice-president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the government would help the Twasam family bury Christian Atsu in a respectable manner.

At the Kotoka International Airport in Ghana, the lifeless remains of Ghanaian international Christian Atsu have arrived.

Thousands of people perished in the horrific earthquake that shook Turkey and Syria on February 6, including Christian Atsu, who was one of them.

His twin sister, older brother, and Ghana’s ambassador to Turkey traveled with the remains aboard a Turkish Airlines flight.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA), the family, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and members of the church were all present at the Event.

Dr. Bawumia stated in a brief speech:  “It is a very sad day that we are here to receive the mortal remains of our brother, our son, our husband, our uncle”.

According to Dr Bawumia “the tragedy that occurred in Turkey about a week ago is one which was devastating and we anxiously and nervously prayed that our brother Christian Astu will be found alive. We hoped against hope every day that passed; we prayed and prayed but alas when he was found he was no more”.

“We would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere condolences to the Twasam family. It is a painful loss, a very painful one” Dr Bawumia stated.
