Flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) says the demise of former Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Kumah has been a personal blow.

The NPP flag bearer disclosed this in a tribute to former Ejisu MP who also doubled as Deputy Finance Minister.

According to Dr. Bawumia, the former lawmaker was also focused on youth development.

“His initiatives focused on empowering the youth and looking for a brighter future for Ghana’s next generation. His commitment to the national development program remains indelible and has left an enduring mark on the country’s trajectory.

“He was also a lawyer of good standing, in that area he was brilliant, diligent, and professional in dealings with his clients,” Dr. Bawumia stated.

He continued: “His sudden death in March has been a personal blow. Long before I decided to run for president, Hon. John Kumah was among the few party leaders and legislators to have publicly urged me to run and pledged his unending support. Through his public pledge, John supported me strongly, campaigning with me everywhere in the country.”

The final funeral rite for the late politician is currently underway and in attendance by major political leaders in the country.
