Social media has erupted with condolences following the death of former General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John.
He is reported to have died in Accra on Wednesday after a short illness.
Until his death, Sir John was the CEO of the Forestry Commission.
Some well-wishers took to social media to share their condolences with the family of Sir John.
Sir John was one of the people that convinced President @NAkufoAddo to run for the third time. I remember how he told the president that even if he’s in a wheel chair, he’s going to push him around to campaign. I wonder how Akufo-Addo must be feeling.— RexOmarrr1 (@RexOmarrr1) July 1, 2020
Rip Sir John. It’s frightening how people are dying and no one is paying attention to the warnings of the Medical Council. Maybe our Covid is now starting and our leaders need to pay attention. Rip Sir John aka ‘Fear Delegates’— Ebow Sam-Monney (@Monney001) July 1, 2020
