Former President John Mahama has eulogised the late Dr Kwabena Adjei, the former national chairman of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The flag bearer of the NDC in a statement said: “I just learnt with profound sadness, the passing of Dr Kwabena Adjei, former National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC). Dr Adjei has through his contributions left an indelible mark on the democratic development of the NDC as a party and our dear nation Ghana.
“I fondly remember Dr Adjei for his firm and effective leadership of the Majority Caucus in Parliament of which I was a member between 1996 and 2000. His impassioned contributions to parliamentary debates and unflinching commitment have been a reference point for contemporary politicking.
"During my visit to him last Sunday at the Ridge Hospital, the doctors described his condition as stable.
“He was in good cheer and was positive he will join us in the political trenches soon. His demise has left a huge void in the NDC and left Ghana the poorer for it.
“I join my wife, Lordina, to extend our heartfelt condolences and sympathies to his family and the entire NDC.”
Dr Adjei died on Tuesday, 12 March 2019 after a long illness.
Dr Adjei, until his passing, was a member of the Council of Elders of the party, a former member of parliament for Biakoye Constituency, a former PNDC Deputy Secretary of the Volta Region and former PNDC Deputy Secretary of Industries, Science & Technology.
He also served as a former Minister of Lands & Forestry, former Minister of Food & Agriculture and former Minister of Parliamentary Affairs in the 4th Republic.
