President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed deep condolence to the Government and people of Burundi over the passing of their outgoing President, Pierre Nkurunziza.
Nkurunziza, 55, a keen sports enthusiast, died of a heart attack in a hospital in east-central Burundi, according to a Burundian government statement issued on Tuesday.
He was due to hand over the reins of power in August to the winner of the May’s presidential election after ruling the East African nation for 15 years.
“The Ghanaian people and I extend our deepest condolences to the Government and people of the Republic of Burundi, on the sad news of the death of their President, His Excellency Pierre Nkurunziza. May his soul rest in perfect peace,” President Akufo-Addo wrote on his Twitter handle Wednesday.
