Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has joined the family of the late Akenten Appiah Menka to commiserate with them as they mark one week of the demise of the late lawyer.
The Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Council of Elders in the Ashanti Region died exactly a week ago on Tuesday February 13, 2018 at the age of 84.
The Vice President in his earlier tribute to the late lawyer, described him as an “amazing patriot” who served Ghana faithfully as a Minister of State in the Second Republic.
As part of the one-week memorial of the NPP stalwart’s passing, Dr. Bawumia was in Kumasi to mourn with the family.
He wrote on his Facebook page, “I was in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional Capital, on Tuesday, 20th February 2018, to mourn with the family and friends of the late lawyer and NPP stalwart Akenten Appiah-Menka at his one week celebration.”
“Deeply saddened” Dr. Bawumia also prayed to God to grant peace to the late Appiah Menka and strengthen the bereaved family.
