Ghana is in mourning as the one of her political figures goes home today. Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie popularly called Sir John is being mourned by Ghanaians especially members of the New Patriotic Party. Sir John was a former General Secretary of the NPP and was the Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission before his demise.
At the funeral grounds of the late politician, some members of the Forestry Commission stormed the place and granted an exclusive interview with Kofi Adoma. According to the representative who spoke, Sir John will greatly be remembered for the improvements he brought to the commission. He explained that many of the workers have no party cards and yet they were accepted.
“When we started the job we had close to 2,000 workers. When Sir John was there even if the salary delays he will talk to us and the monies will come in quickly. But since Sir John left our salaries have delayed and have accrued without being paid. If he was around things would have not been like this. We are praying the government hears our call.
We are sad. Look at our clothes. It shows sadness. His departure has turned things around. His knowledge and experience will be missed. He was like a brother” the representative said.
