Members of Parliament on Tuesday suspended sitting to console former First Lady Ernestina Naadu Mills at her residence, as part of the one week celebration of the death of President John Evans Atta Mills in Accra.

Mr Cletus Apul Avoka, the Majority Leader, who announced the suspension on the floor of the House immediately sitting began, said some members had already left the House earlier to console the relatives of late President Mills at Otuam, his hometown in the Central Region.

He said they were expected to return to the House to observe the minute’s silence at 1415 hours, the exact time President Mills passed on at the 37th Military Hospital on July 24.

Parliamentary choir would treat members and staff with music in honour of the late President Mills.
