But concerns raised by the Awadada of the Anlo State, Agbotui, and Allied family had caused President Akufo-Addo to allow them to settle all outstanding issues regarding the customary rites and select a suitable date for the state to join in facilitating the departure of the late statesman.

However, a communique by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration to the international community and diplomatic missions revealed a change in the schedule.
