The Youth Organiser had been battling a medical condition and was flown to India for medical treatment, but could not make it upon his return to Ghana a few months after a successful surgery.

The ceremony saw the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the NPP National Youth Organiser, Henry Nana Boakye and other party officers as well as members in attendance.

“It is difficult to eulogise a man with exceptional traits who has made inroads in diverse areas of politics, religion and social life. How much difficult to do so for a giant, in the context of youth politics, in the northern part of the country,” he said.
