A statement from the office of the former President said the delegation was led by Mr C K Dewornu, Former Inspector General of Police.

The delegation described the late Okudzeto who was the President of the Volta Foundation as an industrialist who championed the cause of the youth, advocated girl child education and provided a number of scholarships to many deprived children from the Anlo area.

President Mahama according to the statement described the deceased as an uncle who made it a point to call his attention to various issues of prime importance to national development.

Key among the issues the deceased called the attention of the Former President, he said was his vision to have a sea port at Keta.
