The National Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has paid glowing tribute to the late General Manager for Joy Brands at The Multimedia Group, Elvis Koku Kwashie.

According to Sammi Awuku, the seasoned journalist, “gave real meaning to independent, credible and fearless journalism even in the face of extreme disagreement with us as political activists.”

He also noted that Mr Kwashie made the profession of journalism very interesting.

In view of that, his loss will be a strong blow to the media fraternity.

Mr Awuku’s only regret was not being able to meet his “friend” before he passed away.

“You will occasionally call and ask when our famous meeting was going to take place. Sadly it never did.

“Life is too short to make excuses,” he read.

Elvis Kwashie passed in the late hours of Tuesday, December 28, after a short illness at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC).

The National Lotter Authority (NLA) Boss subsequently commiserated with the family of the late Manager.
