I am deeply saddened to hear about the sudden passing of Hon Daniel Okyem Aboagye, the former Member of Parliament for Bantama constituency. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family during this difficult time. Daniel was not only a respected colleague, but also a dear friend for many years, and his loss is deeply felt.
In this moment of grief, let's all find solace in the words of Ecclesiastes 3:1, which reminds us that “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” This verse serves as a reminder that life is filled with both joy and sorrow, and that we must embrace the ebb and flow of these seasons.
As we mourn the loss of Daniel, let us also remember the wise saying, “Grief is the price we pay for love.” It is a testament to the impact Daniel had on our lives and the love we shared with him. May his memory be a source of strength and comfort to his family, knowing that he was deeply loved and respected by many.
Member of Parliament for Bantama and Minister for Works and Housing
