Mr Haruna Iddrisu, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Minority Leader in Parliament has urged Ghanaians to celebrate the life of late former Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur.
“May we celebrate the life of Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur by rededicating ourselves to the ideas of respect and decency in public office he so espoused,” Mr Iddrisu stated on Friday, in his tribute to the late former Vice President at the main auditorium of the Accra International Conference Centre.
“It would be only a befitting memorial to our fallen hero to now rise as a nation to the pressing call to fully resource the National Ambulance Service with enough vehicles and well-trained personnel to respond expeditiously to inevitable emergencies nationwide,” he added.
According to him, the deceased contributed to the advancement of the country as a lecturer at the Economics Department of the University of Ghana, Governor of the Bank of Ghana, as Vice President and many other roles.
He said only then would we be worthy of our word when we again say, “Never again”.
The late Amissah-Arthur died on Friday 29th June, 2018. In honour of him, the Government had decided to rename the Morri Sensor High School as Amissah-Arthur Senior High School.
