The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says it has been hard hit by the news of the sudden death of its incumbent Member of Parliament for the Kumawu Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Hon. Philip Atta Basoah.
A statement issued by the party said the death was devavasting especially when the party is already mourning the death of a stalwart of the NPP and former Finance Minister Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei, who died about a week ago.
The party described him as a long standing member who served as a District Chief Executive of the Sekyere East District from June 2005 to January 2009.
He was the incumbent a Member of Parliament since 2013.
The NPP “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.
While commiserating with the Parliament of Ghana, the NPP also extends its deepest condolences to the bereaved family, particularly his wife and children, and the good people of Kumawu, for such a great loss.
As a mark of respect in his honour, the NPP directs that all Party flags at its offices across the country, fly at half-mast for the next seven days.”
