Energy Minister Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Agric Minister Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei Mensah.

Being an Akan himself, Akufo-Addo arrived at the funeral dressed in black mourning cloth while Bawumia wore black smock.

The late Opanin Amaning happens to be from the Kyebi area where Akufo-Addo also hails from. He was 87 years old.
