Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Friday, May 20, on behalf of President Nana Akufo-Addo led a government delegation to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to commiserate with the family on the death of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Earlier in the week, Dr Bawumia signed the book of condolence at the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Accra.
“May Allah welcomes him and grant him Jannatul Firdaus,” Dr Bawumia said.
UAE has announced a 40-day mourning period with flags at half-mast.
Work was suspended in the public and private sectors for the first three days, starting last Saturday.
Sheikh Khalifa took over as the UAE's second president in November 2004, succeeding his father as the 16th ruler of Abu Dhabi.
He has since been buried in accordance with Islamic customs.
