    NPP Executives, DCE barred from attending late MP’s funeral

    The family of the late Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumawu Constituency, Hon. Philip Basoah has barred the District Chief Executive(DCE) from the area  of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Executives from attending the funeral rites.

    The ban according to the family, targets the District Chief Executive Officer (DCE) of the area in particular Mr. Samuel Addae Agyekum who has been accused severally of engineering evil against the late MP.

    “The NPP executives must count themselves out of all funeral arrangement and everything concerning my late brother’s funeral”, brother of the late MP Mr Solomon Basoah warned on live radio

    Giving reasons for the decision by the family on Kumasi-based  Angel FM, Mr Solomon Basoah revealed that, “on Wednesday I was told they (NPP executives in the district) wanted to come to the family so I called the DCE and he also confirmed. Just after speaking with the DCE,  I called Justin Kodua and told him my mother is old and she is aware of all that the party did to my brother in Kumawu. Sometimes they insult my mother herself which she is aware. It is likely she will go with her son if she sees the Kumawu executives at the funeral. Therefore, none of the party executives of Kumawu must step foot at the funeral. They must count themselves out of all funeral arrangements and everything concerning my late brother’s funeral.”

    The District Chief Executive Officer Hon Mr. Samuel Addae Agyekum was also accused by the family of spreading falsehood about the late MP while he was on his sick bed battling for his life.

    “My brother has suffered”, he said while crying on live radio. 

    The Former MP Philip Basoah died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after he was admitted at the hospital for treatment.

    The late Philip Basoah was 54 years of age and it is unclear what actually the cause of his death was.

    Philip Basoah came to Parliament in 2017 after he won convincingly in the 2016 elections.

    Prior to becoming a Member of Parliament, he was a Chief Executive for the Sekyere East District from June 2005 to January 2009 and was also a tutor at the Agogo State College.
