When the family called on him at Pai-Katanga to announce the burial arrangement, Mr Boateng expressed his sympathy to the bereaved family.

He described the late MCE as ‘a good man who dedicated his life to serve his people when he was in office.

‘We really need him here, but as it is often said, God needs good people better than we do; let us therefore pray for his soul.’
