Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and many other members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have been pouring tributes to the late Deputy Finance Minister and MP for Ejisu, John John Ampontuah Kumah as he’s being laid to rest today, May 18.

Dr. Bawumia particularly eulogized the late Kumah for his support of his presidential ambition, saying that he has lost a friend and a strong supporter.

“Long before I decided to run for president, John Kumah was among the few party leaders and legislators to have publicly urged me to run and pledged his unending support. Through his public pledge, John supported me strongly, campaigning with me everywhere in the country,” he said.

His death, according to the NPP has left a vacuum, but also a great legacy worth emulating by its members.

“We will never forget him. His hard work also led to his position as the deputy Finance Minister. We appreciate all his contributions and support for the party. We should all learn from his legacy. Indeed, the late John Kumah has fought a good fight, finished the race and kept the faith and confidence that the good people of Ejisu constantly will remember him,” party secretary, Justin Kodua said.
