Tolerant Amissah-Arthur was in the wrong party – John Boadu jabs
The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party has eulogized the late Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur; describing him as a tolerant fellow.
John Boadu said he admired the former Vice President for his level and the patience with which he went about his duties.
“[I will remember him for] his level of tolerance and patience, being able to hold on to himself without being pushed by the party and people who believe you must answer to everything and respond in like manner,” Mr Boadu said.
The NPP functionary stated that those traits the late Vice President possessed, were worth emulating by all citizenry.
“It’s important that all of us learn that,” he told Joy News’ Kwesi Parker Wilson Thursday.
Mr Boadu however took a jab at the political party of the late Veep, the National Democratic Congress (NDC); arguing that the party didn’t deserve him.
“…we believe he was in the wrong party,” he said. With that character, “it was a misnomer in their party but all said and done, It is a virtue we can hold on to,” he said.
Speaking to the media after filing past the corpse of the former Veep at the Accra International Conference Cantre, Mr Boadu said what the government would do to serve as a legacy in memory of Kwesi Amissah-Arthur depends on what the family wants.
