President John Dramani Mahama has visited the family of the late Mrs Theodosia Okoh, describing her as an “illustrious daughter.”

"I am here first to sympathize with the family of our late mother, sister, and grand-mother, and to sign the book of condolence... and will like to call on others to come and pay their last respect to her."

President Mahama said this when he visited the family of the late Theodosia Okoh, who passed on last Sunday at her Ridge residence in Accra.

Mrs Okoh, who designed the National Flag, was 92.

He said the designer of the national flag of Ghana would always be remembered with the sight of the colours of the national flag.

Mahama said Mrs Okoh paid her dues and therefore deserved a lot of tributes to see her off into the bosom of “The Lord”.

All institutions in Ghana were directed by the presidency to fly at half-mast for three days.

President Mahama was accompanied by Dr. Omane Boamah, Minister of Communications; Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo, Greater Accra Regional Minister; Mr. Rashid Pelpuo, a Minister of State; Ambassador Kwasi Quartey, Executive Secretary to the President; and Mr. Baffoe Bonney, Presidential Staffer, among others.

Mr. Kwesi Okoh, son of the late national figure, described her death as peaceful as she woke up, took her meals before reverting to her bed, only to be declared dead after some hours.

“As a result, we don't even know the exact time our mother, grandmother, and sister departed,” he said.
