John Kumah Goes Home

THE LATE John Kumah, who was a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Ejisu Constituency in the Ashanti Region and a Deputy Minister of Finance was buried last Saturday May 18, 2024

President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia were among the mourners who stormed Ejisu to pay their last respects to John Kumah.

Before the burial ceremony at the cemetery, the body of John Kumah was placed in an open casket for the mourners to file past it and officially pay their last respects to him at Ejisu.

John Kumah, it would be recalled, died suddenly after a short illness in March this year and he left behind a wife, Lilian Kumah and six children.

In a tribute, Lilian Kumah described her late husband as her “everything” and stated emphatically that she is what she is in life today because of John Kumah’s support and guidance.

Amid sobs, the widow said that life would never be the same for her and her children in the absence of John Kumah, stressing that her husband would be greatly missed forever.

Vice President Dr. Bawumia, on his part, openly bemoaned that he has lost a great friend and a staunch supporter, saying that John Kumah loved and cherished him.

According to him, John Kumah was among the people who supported him to become the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the 2024 polls.

The NPP Scribe, Justin Kodua, stated that John Kumah supported the NPP from his school days in the university and rose through the ranks to become MP and a deputy minister.

He said John Kumah’s death has created a big vacuum in the NPP that would be very difficult to fill, and called for a peaceful rest for the last Ejisu lawmaker.
