Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has paid a glowing tribute to the slain Abuakwa North MP, describing him as a promising “young man”.
Joseph Boakye Danqua-Adu died in his East Legon residence in Accra after he was stabbed by an alleged thief while sleeping. The police have leveled charges against a 19-year-old teenager Daniel Asiedu who has claimed responsibility for the murder.
The vice president who joined family and friends to mark the first week of his passing in Accra said “Ghana is the loser” of the tragic incident.
“This is one crime that is impossible to explain, the motive is lost to almost everybody. All we know is that it has terminated the life of a promising man. A career has been cut short. Ghana is the loser,” Mr. Amissah-Arthur wrote in a tribute.
Other dignitaries including the flagbearer of the opposition NPP Nana Akufo-Addo and his running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia attended the ceremony.
