- The Chief scribe of the NPP has described the former vice president, Amissah-Arthur as a very patient person
- The NPP's General Secretary believes the late Amissah-Arthur was a 'fine gentleman' but joined the wrong party
The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), has eulogized the late Vice President of Ghana, Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, describing him as a tolerant person.
According to John Boadu, he personally admired the late Amissah-Arthur for his level of patience and humility with which he went about with his duties.
Speaking in an interview with Joy News after paying his respect to the former veep, John Boadu stressed that the late Vice President was a fine gentleman, but only found himself in the wrong political party.
“I will remember him for his level of tolerance and patience, being able to hold on to himself without being pushed by the party and people who believe you must answer to everything and respond in like manner,” Mr Boadu said.
The NPP Chief Scribe stated that those traits possessed and exhibited by the late Vice President worth emulating by all young Ghanaian citizens.
“It’s important that all of us learn that,” the NPP man said.
John Boadu in his comment further jabbed the National Democratic Congress (NDC); arguing that the party didn’t deserve to have Amissah-Arthur as their member.
“We believe he was in the wrong party. With that character, it was a misnomer in their party but all said and done, it’s a virtue we can hold on to,” he said.
The mortal remains of the late Vice President will be laid to rest today, Friday July 27, at the Military Cemetery, after a burial service at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC).
The late Vice President Amissah-Arthur, 67, passed away at the 37 Military Hospital on June 29, 2018, after he reportedly collapsed at the Air Force gym during his routine workout.
