Amissah-Arthur was ‘Christ-like’ – Gov’t

Government has paid tribute to late former Vice-President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, for his service to the country.

On behalf of the Akufo-Addo government, Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia read a tribute at the pre-burial service at the Accra International Conference Centre held on Friday, 27 July 2018, and stated that Mr Amissah-Arthur served the nation “with utmost integrity”.

His attitude to work and contribution to economic development was described as one to be emulated by all.

The vice-president described his late predecessor as a good Christian who “strived to live a Christ-like life”.

He said the former Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) was one who would turn the other cheek if he had a slap on one side of his face, adding: “He was never one to seek vengeance”.

Dr Bawumia said Mr Amissah-Arthur’s memory should spur the country on to live, love, embrace one another and fight for the nation.

Meanwhile, the government of Ghana has decided to re-name Moree Senior High School in the Central Region after the late former vice-president.

“In consultation with his family, His Excellency the president and the government, have decided to rename Moree Senior High School to Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur Senior High School in honour of the late vice-president”, Dr Bawumia revealed.
