Reading governmentâ€™s tribute at the funeral service of his predecessor, Dr Bawumia said the Moree SHTS will now be known as Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur SHS.
This is to honour the memory of Mr Amissah-Arthur, the Vice President said.
Ghanaâ€™s fifth Vice President in the Fourth Republic died in the morning of Friday, June 29 at the 37 Military Hospital.
He had gone for a morning work-out at the Air Force Gym, where he collapsed.
His funeral service began on Thursday with a public file past at the foyer of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
On Friday, when his burial service was held, dignitaries of both the past and present government were in attendance.
All living former presidents including John Dramani Mahama, under whose tenure Mr Amissah-Arthur served as Vice President, were present.
Tributes were read by children as well as widow, Matilda Amissah-Arthur, who could not come to terms with messages of consolation from same persons she said were in the country when her husband was villified.
Reading governmentâ€™s tribute, Dr Bawumia described Mr Amissah-Arthur as a â€œquintessentialâ€ statesman and announced that the senior high school in his hometown, Moree in the Central Region, will be renamed after him.
