Already battling with the persistent increase in COVID 19 numbers in Ghana, and the new voter's register brouhaha, the NPP party and Ghana as a whole have been hit by the untimely death of Kojo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known in the political circles as Sir John.
Kojo Owusu Afriyie was a Ghanaian lawyer cum politician. He had served in various political positions in the ruling NPP government before his untimely death.
Before his unfortunate demise, he was serving as the Chief Executive Officer of Ghana's forestry commission.
He was born in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, and attended the seventh day adventist school in Bekwai from where he obtained his GCE ordinary level certificate.
After obtaining an advanced level GCE certificate from Konongo Odumase, he studied political science at the University of Ghana.
He then got enrolled at the Ghana school of law and graduated with a bachelor of laws.
During the then John Agyekum Kuffour Administration, he was appointed head of the Ghana's petroleum Corporation.
He served as the General Secretary for the ruling NPP party between 2010 and 2014, then lost his position to Kwabena Agyapong whilst seeking a second term.
He was thereafter appointed CEO of Ghana's forestry commision in 2017.
He was vociferous, attentive to detail and a gentle man. With these being said, Ghana has undoubtedly lost an icon. May his soul rest in peace.
