The memorial ceremony marked the remembrance of the Heads of State and Government as well as high ranking personalities over the Prime Minister’s life. Hamed Bakayoko was honored with the posthumous decoration and the military parade.
Devoted Politician and Philanthropist, the Late Hamed Bakayoko who served as Prime Minister since July 2020 was considered as a potential successor to President Alassane Ouattara.
The Head of Government demise has brought tears and sadness in Cote d’Ivoire, especially in the Abobo Commune.
