Reminiscing the bond between the Harriman family and the Annan family of Ghana, Ms. Temi Harriman in a statement issued on behalf of the two families recalled Mr. Annan as a civilised, urbane and a patriotic African. She particularly remembered fond memories the Harrimans had with the Annan family and the fellowship the three patriarchs had among themselves that distilled down to their families.

“A diplomat per excellence, a great son of Ghana, who made Africa proud on the world stage. He had an aristocratic and elegant mien and became the first United Nations secretary-general hired from within the United Nations system,” she said.

“He was a most civilised, urbane man. We pray for his eternal repose and for his family at this time,” she affirmed.
