“It must be a big blow to his wife and children and entire family. I express condolences to his wife and children and of course the NDC particularly because he played an integral role in the party. It’s a sad day for Ghana. I hope that the good Lord Himself will find a better place for his soul and may he rest in peace”, he said on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' on Friday.
