The National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Volta/Oti Region is in a state of disbelief following news of the death of Mr Steve Akorli and Mr Raphael Ogyemorko, members of the Party who had held various positions in government.
A release signed by the Regional Secretary, Mr. James Gunu and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), expressed shock at the death of Mr. Steve Akorli, former Member of Parliament, erstwhile Ho East Constituency and Minister for Roads and Highways under former President Jerry John Rwalings and Mr. Raphael Ogyemorko, former District Chief Executive (DCE), Krachi East District.
The release said both Mr. Akorli and Mr. Ogyemorko were “politically active” during the just ended NDC Presidential Primaries in the Adaklu and Krachi East Constituencies respectively and showed no sign of ill health.
“The Party have lost selfless icons in probity, accountability and social justice who served their party and nation diligently,” it said.
The release extended heartfelt condolence of the Party to both families and the entire NDC family.
