The usual solidarity message platform all political parties create for their colleagues during conferences and congresses recorded ‘no show’ as the main rivals of the New Patriotic Party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) failed to show up at NPP’s National Delegates Conference.
Their absence, the MC for the NPP conference, attributed to the death of the Vice President Kwasi Amissah Arthur.
The New Patriotic Party officials who have converged at Koforidua for a Congress proceeded to observe a minute silence for the late Vice president Amissah Arthur who passed on last week.
The President earlier declared national mourning for the late Vice president and ordered all flags to fly at half mast.
A One week memorial service was yesterday held in honour of the late former Vice President of Ghana, Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur today, July 6 at the Ridge Church in Accra.
In attendance at the memorial was the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia; former Presidents JJ Rawlings, John Dramani Mahama; Speaker of Parliament, Mike Oquaye; Members of Parliament, Ministers, Ambassadors, executives and members of the National Democratic Congress as well as other high profile dignitaries.
