The leaders of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the central region have suspended all political campaigns to mourn the death of their colleague, Robert Amissah.
Mr Amissah was the party’s regional communications manager until he disappeared in the early hours of Saturday.
In a statement, Party Secretary Richard Takyi-Mensah said the deceased will be greatly missed.
According to him, the members of the NPP are saddened by the death of Mr. Amissah.
“The late Mr. Amissah was indeed a very loyal and committed member of the New Patriotic Party and truly served the party.”
“The death of Mr. Robert Amissah has created a huge void within the Regional Party and its communications team.”
The party further sympathized with the family of the deceased.
“The Regional Party expresses its deepest condolences to the entire bereaved family, wife and children.”
In honor of the memory of Mr. Robert Amissah, the central regional branch of the NPP has ordered that all party flags in the region be flown at half mast.
“All party and campaign activities of all aspiring Constituency Officers are also to be suspended for two days, from today, Saturday April 23, 2022 to Sunday April 24, 2022,” the NPP leadership further ordered in the region.
Mr. Amissah reportedly died of an asthma attack.
He was traveling alone from Kasoa to Cape Coast on Friday when he had a stroke at Biriwa Junction.
Nearby officers saw him weak in his car and sent him to Cape Coast University Hospital for treatment, but he did not survive.
