Volta Region NDC Hardest Hit by Dr. Kwabena Adjei’s Death–James Gunu

The Volta Regional Secretary for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), James Gunu has disclosed that the party in the region was the hardest hit by the news of the passing away of its former Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei.

Mr. Gunu said the region had lost some dedicated members from the land to death in a spate of few weeks with some yet to be buried and to add another (demise of Dr. Adjei) to the already unfortunate situation was just too much for the party.

The former District Chief Executive (DCE) for Akatsi North who was speaking to Kofi Gamor on West FM morning show, West Breakfast Drive on Wednesday following Dr. Adjei’s death on Tuesday morning at the Ridge Hospital in Accra, said the region was already grieving the departure of some compatriots.

“Recently, we lost Benjamin Dagadu, a former Deputy Minister of Energy who we’re yet to bury. Not long after that, a former Minister and Member for Parliament of Adaklu, Hon. Steve Akorlie passed on. We went to commiserate with the bereaved family who are yet to set a date for his burial service.  Three days later, Maxwell Ajumako, former DCE for Krachi East also passed away and his one-week celebration will be held in Accra this Saturday.”

“Just as we’re settling in on all these, our former Chairman, Dr. Adjei also died. All this is difficult for us as a party and we don’t know how we’ll be handling the situation,” he lamented.

Mr. Gunu said the “great trees in the party that we look up to have fallen” and asked for prayers for the families of the deceased and the NDC for God’s protection.

He called on party members to remain strong in these trying times and forge ahead in unity for victory in 2020 because that was the only thing that would give solace to their departed comrades who had demonstrated their commitment to the party and would have loved to see it  wrest power from the ruling party.

Meanwhile, the National Executives of the party have declared a 3-day mourning for the late Dr Adjei where all party flags would fly at half-mast and as well, all party activities suspended.

This affected the party’s planned activity to induct John Mahama as its flag bearer on Wednesday.

Before his death, Dr Kwabena Adjei was a member of the Council of Elders of the NDC, a former Member of Parliament for Biakoye Constituency, a former PNDC Deputy Secretary for Volta Region and Former PNDC Deputy Secretary for Industries, Science and Technology.

He also served as Minister of Lands and Forestry, Minister of Food and Agriculture and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs.
