Amissah-Arthur was in the wrong party – NPP Gen Sec

Mr. Boadu was a member of NPP’s delegation at the laying-in-state of Mr Amissah-Arthur.[/caption] General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) John Boadu has eulogised the late former Vice President, Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, describing him as a very restrained figure in politics. He said he was admired by all especially his opponents and there were important lessons to be learnt from his character. Part of his admirable traits, according to Mr Boadu was “being able to hold on to himself without being pushed by party hawks and people that believe that you must answer to everything and respond in like manner”. The NPP General Secretary was speaking to 3FM’s Mercydarlyn Lokko on Thursday, when he led his party’s delegation to file past the mortal remains of the former Vice President. As part of a three-day funeral service for Mr Amissah-Arthur, the public was allowed to file past his body at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) on Thursday. A burial service is scheduled to be held on Friday after which the mortal remains will be driven through some principal streets of Accra. Taking his turn as part of NPP’s delegation, Mr Boadu, who won the General Secretary position earlier this month, said the late former vice president cut a good figure in his political life. But he added: “Only that we believe he was in the wrong party. “So with even that character it was a misnomer in their party.” He said government is ready to collaborate with the Amissah-Arthur family to give the statesman a befitting send-off “We expect them to come out with what they want to do in memory of him.”
