The Executives of the Central Region’s New Patriotic Party (NPP) have suspended all political campaigns to mourn the death of their colleague, Robert Amissah.

Mr Amissah was the Regional Communications Officer for the party until his demise in the early hours of Saturday.

In a statement, the Party’s Secretary, Richard Takyi-Mensah, said the deceased will be sorely missed.

According to him, members of the NPP are saddened by the death of Mr Amissah.

“The late Mr Amissah was indeed a very loyal and committed member of the New Patriotic Party and really served the party.”

“The passing on of Mr Robert Amissah has created a huge vacuum in the Regional Party and its Communications Team.”

The party further sympathised with the family of the deceased.

“The Regional Party expresses its deepest condolences to the entire bereaved family, the wife and the kids.”

In honour of the memory of Mr Robert Amissah, the NPP Central Regional chapter has directed that all party flags in the region fly at half-mast.

“All party and campaign activities of all aspiring Constituency Officers must also be suspended for two days, from today, Saturday, 23 April 2022 to Sunday, 24th April 2022,” the NPP leadership in the region further directed.

Mr Amissah is reported to have died after an asthma attack.

He was travelling from Kasoa to Cape Coast alone on Friday when he had an attack at Biriwa Junction.

Police officers nearby saw him weak in his car and sent him to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital for treatment, but he didn’t survive.
