Large numbers of Ghanaians are filing past the coffin of the former president, Jerry Rawlings, ahead of his funeral on Wednesday.
The open casket is surrounded by flowers, candles and a glass screen at Accra's international conference centre.
Mourners are wearing face masks and are socially distanced, in line with coronavirus restrictions. Mr Rawlings, who was 73, died in November from an undisclosed illness.
A local TV station has been broadcasting the event.

His burial was delayed, in part, because of disagreements between Ghana's current political leaders.
During two decades in public life, he twice led military take-overs, before later returning the country to multi-party politics and winning elections.
