Exit Of Titan ........... Ghanaian Government Set To Honor Koffi Annan DEATH Wish (With Low Key Burial )
Special report by Mike CERUTTI Osagie
One of world’s greatest ever word smith, William Shakespeare was most categorically right on place of the great after death when he said “When beggars die there are no comets seen; but the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes."
Late Secretary-General of the United Nations, Dr. Kofi Annan was no doubt a big “Prince” and deserves nothing but a burial meant for kings, but he was modest and demanded before death to be buried in a very simple way
And such he will be getting from today as the remains of the formal Secretary-General of the United Nations; Dr. Kofi Annan will arrive at the Accra International Airport on today September 10, 2018 at 4 pm, World LEADERS
Platform can reveal today
KOFI ANAN: A BRIEF PROFILE
Kofi Atta Annan, a diplomat from the West African country of Ghana, was the first to emerge from the ranks of United Nations (UN) staff to serve as the Secretary-General of the UN. He served as the seventh UN Secretary-General from 1997 to 2006. The UN and Annan were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize 2001 "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world".
While he was the Secretary-General, he prioritized the establishment of a comprehensive reforms programme aimed at revitalizing the UN. UN had traditionally been working in the areas of development and he worked for further strengthening this work. A passionate advocate of human rights, and a strong believer in the universal values of equality, tolerance and human dignity, Annan wanted to bring the UN closer to the people by reaching out to new partners, and thereby restore public confidence in the organization.
He had a major part to play in the establishment of two new intergovernmental bodies: the Peace building Commission and the Human Rights Council in 2005. He also played a pivotal role in the creation of the Global Funds to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
He strongly opposed the 2003 invasion of Iraq and Iran's nuclear programme. After his retirement from the UN in 2006, he returned to Ghana where he was involved with a number of African as well as global organizations before his death .
