“My friend Agyarko was a fine gentleman. In fact, may his soul rest in peace. We always meet on Tuesdays at Multimedia but he goes to Joy News and I go on Adom TV. I remember I went with him to a shoe store and he expressed willingness in buying the shoes for his son’s marriage ceremony in January.

“The last time I saw him was in September in the [United] States [of America] where he was very fit till he later told me he wasn’t too well and was going back for medical treatment,” he said on Adom TV’s morning show, “Badwam” Tuesday.
