Oh Prof, who will your Better Ghana vision carry?

Some say you should have tarried

Are they playing God?

Your death has made many harried

Your fiery critics no longer can hold you in derision

We all mourn you in unison

Ghana and Ekumfi Otuam have lost a worthy son

A great man in death unites

Tributes pour in from right and left

Even your bitterest bashers are cowed

In death you stand so tall

In death you shamed them all

When the physical and political duels were hottest

You elected and bowed

Though it was not your wish

Death is inescapable path for a mortal

Christ our Lord and St Peter

Receive you at heaven’s portal
