Sad to hear about the passing of former Vice President, Paa Kwasi Amissa Arthur. A man of a very noble character….we became friends when I was at Radio Gold, when he was at the Bank of Ghana.
He’d invite us annually to join him for his birthday or colleagues at Radio Gold would crush at his house and he’s always happy to see us.
His wife,Auntie Matilda, my church elder assisted to cut my wedding cake.
He was very approachable and would look deep into your eyes, listen attentively and would occasionally say something witty… He’d walk straight to you at public places even in his days as Vice President. Condolences to the family!May God grant him a restful repose,” Kofi Okyere Darko.
“Life truly is short…You served your time… Rest sir..It’s in Gods hands..
