He described him as a selfless politician and democrat, a gem, gentleman, a statesman and a true patriot.

The Legon TESCON President said they have lost a mentor, financier and motivator who looked beyond partisan politics and put the interest of Ghana first.

“In my experience as a student politician, I haven’t seen a man as seminal as Hon. Agyarko. Beyond just being a party man, he is a real nationalist and loved to help people succeed. May his family be consoled,” he said.

John Apasipanga said he had a personal relationship with the late Ayawaso West MP whom on many occasions gave him pocket money and sometimes paid his school fees.

“There was a distinction in the way he carried himself and interacted with us, the students. He is a gem so I think the NPP has lost a great man”.
