The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has directed that all party flags must fly at half-mast following the death of its Kumawu MP, Philip Basoah.

According to the party, the death is a devastating blow as it comes barely a week after the death of its former Old Tafo MP, Dr Anthony Akoto Osei.

In a statement, NPP eulogised the late MP was a long-standing member who has served in various capacities.

“Owing to his vast experience as a legislator, Hon. Basoah was appointed as the Chairman of the Employment, Social Welfare and State Enterprise Committee of Parliament. He also served as a member of the lands and Forestry Committee as well as the Committee on Selection.

“He was a gentle and astute politician whose contributions to the Party, constituents, and the development of Ghana through his work in Parliament cannot be overemphasized. As a Party, we take solace from his legacy of hard work and dedication to our country,” parts of the statement signed by General Secretary Justin Kodua read.
