Ex-president John Mahama says the death of one of Multimedia’s standout presenters should help the country turn its attention to health care delivery.
He does not understand why Kwadwo Asare Baffuor Acheampong and other young outstanding Ghanaians including the late Komla Dumor will die at such a young age.
While the country griefs in pain over the loss of KABA, the president said it is about time to consider reducing the talk about politics and rather turn attention to health and revamping the country’s health care delivery system
KABA, 37, died on Saturday morning in a rather shocking manner. He had reported to work the day before but had to leave after complaining of feeling dizzy.
He was later rushed to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital when the sickness got worse but was pronounced dead not long after.
His death has shocked many, with hundreds trooping to the Multimedia Group to commiserate with the family.
On Wednesday the Ex-president arrived at the Multimedia HQ to also sympathise and solidarize with the Group.
He was in the company of some of the top members of the National Democratic Congress including Greater Accra Regional Chairman Ade Coker, Alhaji ABA Fuseini.
Wearing all black with little expression on his face, the ex-president said he was absolutely shocked by the death of the young Ghanaian presenter.
He signed the book of condelence opened on behalf of the late KABA who died at age 37.
The president was distraught that many young lives are cut short at their prime, a concern he shared in the message he wrote in the book of condolence opened on behalf of the late KABA
Speaking to the media gathered, the ex-president described the late presenter as a “man with his own style”, who “puts the chips where they were.”
“It is that harsh objectivity we are going to miss,” he said.
