The burial was attended by thousands of NDC members including former President Jerry John Rawlings. A New Patriotic Party (NPP) delegation led by the Brong Ahafo Deputy Regional Minister, Yaw Adjei-Duffour also attended the burial. In his tribute ex-President Rawlings said Alhaji Adam symbolised the unity of the party in Brong Ahafo Region. He said it was Alhaji Adam who designed the symbol of the NDC. ''The demise of the party stalwart is a great loss to the party''. Mr Isaac K. Adjei-Mensah, Member of Parliament (MP) for Techiman North and Deputy Minority leader, described the late Alhaji Adam as a hard working servant who commanded a great deal of respect in the NDC. ''The late Alhaji Adam has paid his dues well to the people of Techiman and Brong Ahafo and I implore the regional branch of the party to work fearlessly to get a person of his calibre to replace him.'' Awura Amma, a 15-year-old daughter of the deceased in a tribute on behalf of the children said the pain of the death of their father could not be measured.
