My heart is truly broken this morning by the very sudden and extremely sad passing away of HE Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur. The former Vice President was a gentleman among gentlemen, always dignified and respectful of all others, regardless of their stature in life. He was restrained in his politics and exceptionally brilliant and full of integrity. This is a sad loss for this country. May God give his family strength and comfort. May God grant him peaceful rest. ??
