Press Release – Monday 20/11/17
OUR HEART GOES OUT TO KABA AND FAMILY
The Office of Fred Amankwah-Sarfo received with disbelief the news of the sudden demise of ace broadcast journalist Kwadwo Asare Baffour Acheampong (KABA), host of Asempa FM’s award winning Socio-Political show “Eko Sii Sen”.
My team and I are still in shock as we try to come to terms with this great loss. We agonize with his family especially his parents to have lost their only son in his prime age as well as his lovely wife Mrs Valentina and the little daughter.
My team and I are also devastated about the great vacuum his passage has left in Ghana’s media landscape and the Multimedia Group of Companies.
I must personally confess that I have been an ardent listener of Ekosii Sen program over the years and have relied on KABA for most information in our body politics. My relationship with him has been mutually beneficial.
My team and I see his demise as a great loss for mother Ghana as we have lost a gentleman endowed with so much potentials that could make so much impact in our journalism and Socio-Political landscape as evidenced by the several meritorious awards you have won so far.
My team and I join the millions of Ghanaians mourning the passage of KABA. I would like to humbly appeal to the President, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to grant him a state burial.
For the family, wife, daughter and Multimedia Group we say that, may you be comforted by God and may he replace your sorrow with joy…
Fare thee well Kwadwo Asare Baffour Acheampong…!!!
Damirifa Due KABA…!!!
