The late former Deputy Finance Minister and Member of Parliament (MP) for Ejisu Constituency, Dr. John Ampontuah Kumah, has been laid to rest in Kumasi after his untimely passing at the age of 45 following a brief illness.

A high-powered government delegation, led by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, came together to pay their respects and participate in the final funeral rites of the late party stalwart.

In a heartfelt tribute, Vice President Dr. Bawumia reminisced about the unwavering support he had received from the late lawmaker during his campaign for the flagbearer position of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He expressed his gratitude by stating, “True to his public pledge, John supported me strongly, campaigning with me everywhere in the country when I finally announced my decision to contest as flagbearer of the NPP. He desired to see me win the December elections, and I pray that God will grant his desires for me and the party and the country.”

During the event in Kumasi, some regional officers of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Founder of the Movement for Change, Alan Kyerematen, were present to mourn alongside the family and friends of the deceased.
