Fallen officer promoted to Major as gov’t sets GHC500,000 memorial fund

The late Adam Mahama has been promoted to the rank of a major despite meeting his untimely and horrifying death on May 29, 2017.

The government has also set up a memorial fund with a seed money of GHC500,000 all in honour of Major Adam Mahama who was lynched whilst on official duties at Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region.

The promotion and the setting up of the memorial fund was announced by president Nana Akufo Addo during the one week celebration of the fallen soldier.

The president committed to paying a personal amount of GHC50,000.00 in addition to the fund set up by government to be managed by past and present government officials, including former Deputy Interior Minister James Agalga and former government statistician Grace Bediako as managers.

With a promise of providing a full state burial for the fallen hero on Friday, the president said a monument will also be mounted at a yet to be decided venue to remind Ghanaians of the event of May 29, 2017.
