Former President John Dramani Mahama has attended the funeral of Ghanaian businessman Atu Mould.
Atu Mould, a nephew of NDC stalwarts Betty Mould Iddrisu and Alex Mould, passed away on November 17.
Reports at the time indicated that Atu Mould had not been feeling well for sometime before his passing.
One month after his passing, the remains of the businessman who was the CEO of Makam Plant Hire, a heavy-duty logistics company, is being laid rest.
Mahama happens to be one of the many people who have joined the family to mourn and pay their last respects.
Photos and a video have popped up on social media showing the NDC presidential candidate at the funeral grounds at the St James Catholic Church at Osuu in Accra.
The video as sighted by YEN.com.gh shows Mahama arriving in a black Toyota saloon car.
Dressed in a black outfit (mourning cloth) looked sharp as he stepped out of the car and put on his matching nose mask.
Mahama's attendance of Atu Mould's funeral happens to be his first public appearance after rejecting the results of the 2020 presidential election.
As widely known, Ghana went to the polls on Monday, December 7, 2020, in an election which had 12 candidates seeking the people's mandate to be president.
Two days after the polls, the Electoral Commission, led by its chairperson Jean Mensa, declared incumbent president, Nana Akufo-Addo as the winner.
Per Mrs Mensa's declaration, Akufo-Addo defeated his closest contender, John Mahama of the NDC, by over 500,000 votes.
But the NDC has since rejected the declaration with Mahama describing it as tantamount to illegality.
According to Mahama, there were violations of the law governing the election and thus makes EC's declaration illegal.
Meanwhile, the Electoral Commission (EC) has released pink sheets used in tabulating the 2020 presidential election results
The pink sheets have been posted on the EC's website in scanned copies of the original documents
