The one-week observation in memory of departed Ghana international, Christian Atsu, has been scheduled for Saturday, March 4.
The decision resulted from talks among Atsu’s family, the Ghana Football Association (GFA), and the Sports Ministry at the player’s family home.
Evans Bobie, the Deputy Minister of Sports, led the GFA and Sports Ministry representatives in offering their condolences to the grieving family.
Atsu was confirmed dead on Saturday, February 18, after 12 days under rubble as a result of the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria which claimed over 47,000 lives.
The remains of the 31-year-old was flown to Ghana on Sunday from Turkey.
