The flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has eulogised the late Member of Parliament for Ejisu, John Kumah.

In a heartfelt tribute, Dr. Bawumia, the NPP flag bearer, highlighted Kumah’s significant contributions as a CEO of NEIP who advocated for youth development.

“His initiatives focused on empowering the youth and looking for a brighter future for Ghana’s next generation. His commitment to the national development program remains indelible and has left an enduring mark on the country’s trajectory,” Dr. Bawumia remarked.

Dr. Bawumia also praised Kumah’s legal acumen, noting, “He was a lawyer of good standing, brilliant, diligent, and professional in his dealings with clients.”

Reflecting on the impact of Kumah in his political career, Dr. Bawumia shared, “Long before I decided to run for president, Hon. 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.”

The final funeral rites for the late politician are currently underway, attended by major political leaders, friends and families.
