The Kumawu constituency representative, Phillip Atta Basoah, passed away, and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has sent its sympathies to his family and the Kumawu community.
Basoah, 54, passed away early on March 28.
He tragically passed away precisely one week after Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei.
Before entering politics, Mr. Basoah worked as a teacher at the Agogo State College and was the Chief Executive for the Sekyere East District from June 2005 to January 2009.
In a communiqué, the NPP paid tribute to him and characterized him as “a gentle and astute politician whose contributions to the Party, constituents, and the development of Ghana through his work in Parliament cannot be overemphasized.”
Mr. Basoah was chosen to lead the Employment, Social Welfare, and State Enterprise Committee of Parliament due to his extensive legislative expertise.
He was a member of the Committee on Selection as well as the Lands and Forestry Committee.
All party flags at the party’s headquarters across the nation are to flutter at half-mast for the next seven days as a sign of reverence for the late lawmaker.
