The nation of Ghana is in mourning following the sudden passing of a beloved public servant and legislator, Ejisu Member of Parliament and Deputy Finance Minister, Dr. John Kumah. President Nana Akufo-Addo has publicly expressed his deep sorrow over the loss, describing Dr. Kumah’s death as a void that has stripped both his administration and the country of a vibrant and dynamic presence.

In a heartfelt tribute to the late Deputy Minister, President Akufo-Addo shared his reflections on the profound impact Dr. Kumah had on those around him. Known for his humility, diligence, and dedication to Ghana’s progress, Dr. Kumah’s commitment to his work and the well-being of his constituents was palpable. “I am deeply saddened by the tragic news of the sudden death of Hon. John Ampontuah Kumah, whose untimely passing has left us all bereft of a bright, energetic light in our midst,” the President stated.

The President fondly recalled his interactions with Dr. Kumah, from his days as the Leader of the Opposition to his tenure as President, highlighting the warmth and genuine care Dr. Kumah extended towards others. His passion for elevating the lives of the people of Ejisu and the broader Ghanaian populace was unmistakable and served as a testament to his character and the legacy he leaves behind.

As a dedicated member of the New Patriotic Party, Dr. Kumah’s enthusiastic and devoted service to the Ejisu constituency was widely acknowledged and appreciated. “He was a stalwart of the New Patriotic Party in the Ejisu constituency, which he served with great enthusiasm and devotion as a Member of Parliament,” President Akufo-Addo remarked, underscoring Dr. Kumah’s significant contributions to the community and the country at large.

Dr. Kumah’s untimely departure at the age of 45, following a brief illness on Thursday, March 7, has sent shockwaves through the nation. He leaves behind his wife, Apostle Mrs. Lilian Kumah, and six children, along with a grieving nation that will remember him not just as a political figure but as a committed family man whose life’s work was dedicated to the betterment of Ghana. The loss of Dr. John Kumah is not only a personal tragedy for his family but a national loss, reflecting the passing of a man who embodied the ideals of service, commitment, and patriotism.
