Life is full of ups and downs and just perfect moments. We all experience happy moments and unfortunately we experience experience sad or unhappy ones too. Most of these unhappy moments are sudden and are a result of losing some things or people we love or admire.
They are irreplaceable because they each served the country very well to their maximum capacities.
Kwame Nkrumah let us in the fight for our Independence.
Atta Mills made our educational sector very much better.
Rawlings gave us a new sense of hope by making sure fairness was the thing of the day.
One person whose memory we have forgotten about is the late vice president Amissah Arthur.
He was born on April 29, 1951 and left us on June 29, 2018. The late former vice president was an economist, academic and politician. He was a great member of the National Democratic Congress.
He should be a role model legend because he showed the best traits such as humility, intelligence and kindness. He was a very hard-working Ghanaiain and was praised by many including the current president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo.
Political positions he took
Amissah Arthur was the vice president of the 5th republic of Ghana from 6th August 2012 to 7th January 2017.
He was the 12th Governor of the Bank of Ghana from October 1 2009 to 6th August 2012.
Before being Governor he was the Deputy finance minister under the late Jerry John Rawlings from April 1993 to March 1997.
His first big position was being the Deputy Secretary for Finance and Economic Planning from February 1986 to March 1993 under Rawlings's Government.
He attended Mfantsipim and the University Of Ghana. Amissah Arthur left behind a wife and two children; a boy and a girl.
His coming into being vice president was through a nomination by John Dramani Mahama a week after Mahama was sworn in as President following the death of John Evans Atta Mills.
Here are pics to remember him with....
He was a man of virtue and we should all remember him in all the good he did. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
