Yesterday, the Ghanaian political fray was thrown into massive despair, sadness and a pensive mood when a very difficult news emerged that former NPP General Secretary and the CEO of the Forestry Commission, Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie has passed on.
Many political individuals have taken to Social Media to mourn the political firebrand of the New Patriotic Party.
People like Sammy Awuku,Afia Akoto, Eugene Arhin, Francis Asenso Boakye etc have all written fond memories they shared with Sir John on Social Media,with various people sympathizing with them.
Among the very high profile mourners is Ghana’s Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia,he posted this on his official Facebook page.
I have learnt with sadness the passing of Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu-Afriyie aka Sir John, former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party and Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission. I spoke with Sir John only yesterday but little did I know that was our last conversation.
Sir John was a good man who truly paid his dues to the Party and Ghana. I will miss him.
My heartfelt condolences to his family.
Rest in peace, my good friend.
