Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly's Funeral: The People Of Korhogo Welcome His Remains In Fervor

Prime Minister Amadou Gon Coulibaly's funeral: the people of Korhogo welcome the remains of the "Lion" in fervor

A delegation made up of members of the family of the late Prime Minister Amadou Gon, local and religious authorities welcomed this Wednesday July 15, 2020, the remains of the Ivorian Prime Minister, Amadou Gon Coulibaly, who died on July 8 in Abidjan.

It was at 5:20 p.m. local time that the Air Force cargo aircraft, stamped TU-VMA, landed on the tarmac at Poro City Airport. After twenty minutes of meditation, the coffin was placed on the command car in the direction of the city for a procession.

The mortuary procession, marking a halt to devote to the tradition of interethnic alliances between the Sénoufo people and their allies (Koyaka, Gouro, Yacouba), slowed down. After negotiation, as tradition recommends, the procession resumed its course.

It is a population gripped by pain, chanting "AGC President" or "AGC the Lion", who littered the main routes taken by the funeral procession of Prime Minister Amadou Gon. This human tide, going from the Belle Ville district through the Tiékélézo district, district 14, Soba ..., gave a warm and moving welcome to his worthy and illustrious son.

After the reception of the remains in Korhogo, a prayer vigil is scheduled for the evening of Wednesday July 15 in the family courtyard in Gbondala.

This hot day was preceded by a tribute ceremony for members of his political family, the Rassemblement des Houphouétistes pour la Démocratie et la Paix (RHDP) at the Sports Park in Treichville as well as readings of the Holy Quran followed by blessings at the great mosque of the Riviera Golf.

Tomorrow Thursday July 16, at the Municipal Stadium of Korhogo, the Savannah District and the other sister regions of the country will pay tribute to the illustrious disappeared. Burial will take place on Friday July 17, 2020 in the family vault, in strict privacy.

Please share, and leave a last prayer for him using the comment section, thank you.
