The family of President John Mahama has donated GH¢300,000 to the National Cardiothoracic Centre at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
This was in fulfillment of a pledge he made months earlier to donate the proceeds from the funeral of his late mother to the Centre.
He met with the officials of the Centre Monday and presented the cheque.
“The Mahama family today gave the Cardio Centre GH¢280,000 realized from donations at our late mum’s funeral. UT Bank topped up with GH¢20, 000,” tweeted the president via his handle @JDMahama.
President Mahama’s late mother, Hajia Abiba Nnaba, died in Accra on Tuesday, June 14, 2016. She was buried in her hometown, Busunu, in the West Gonja district of the Northern region.
