PRESS RELEASETRIBUTE TO THE LATE RT. HON. PETER ALA ADJETEY
The Government has received with utter shock the reported sudden demise of Rt. Hon. Mr. Peter Ala Adjetey, the former Speaker of Parliament in Accra today.
This unfortunate news comes some 10 days after the President conferred on him a national award ?Order of the Star (MEMBER Division) ?for his selfless role in the development of the Legislature and Public Service.
The whole nation is saddened by the untimely fall of this great man who has served at the highest level with great devotion and commitment and made a great difference in every area that he was involved in.?
He will be particularly remembered for the fine leadership he provided as the Right Honourable Speaker of Parliament during the first term of President Kufuor's administration as indeed he did in all the other areas he served in after his tenure in Parliament.?
As the Government strives to come to terms with the loss of Rt. Hon. Peter Ala Adjetey, an accomplished Lawyer, astute politician and a statesman, it considers it a duty to express on behalf of the nation and on its own behalf condolences to the bereaved family in this difficult period.?
