The Funeral Committee has confirmed to the Speaker of Parliament, Mrs. Joyce Bamford-Addo that the late President John Evans Atta Mills will be buried at the Flagstaff House in Accra.

The remains of the former President will be laid to rest near the residence of Ghana's first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

The Minister of Communications, Haruna Iddrisu indicated on Saturday that the late President Mills would be buried at the Flagstaff House also known as the Jubilee House.

But the decision on the Flagstaff House as the final resting place for the late President was put on hold after President John Mahama visited the home region and hometown of President Mills to officially inform them of the demise of the President.

The Funeral Committee on Monday visited the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and Mausoleum, the Military Cemetery, the Castle Marine Drive and the Flagstaff House in a bid to find a suitable ground to develop into a national memorial park to house all Presidents when they die.

President Mills died at the 37 Military Hospital on Tuesday, July 24 after a short illness.

His funeral is scheduled to take place from August 8-10.
