Leader of the Worldwide Seventh Day Congregation of the Church of Theocracy, Apostle Kadmiel Agbalenyoh, has described the late former Vice-President, Mr Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur, as a great role model for the youth of the country, particularly young politicians.
According to the man of God, the late Amissah-Arthur conducted himself as a great academician, politician, distinguished former Bank of Ghana Governor, a Senior Lecturer, Economist among other important credentials to his credit.
Speaking in an interview with Today on the sidelines during the occasion to mark the one week observation of the life and death of the late Veep in Accra over the weekend, Apostle Agbalenyoh extended his heartfelt condolence to the wife of the late vice president and the entire bereaved family, the NDC and its leaders for their loss, expressing that the whole nation has lost a big hero.
The man of God expressed his reservations on the inadequate availability of ambulances at vantage places in the country, which might have been a factor for the late veep’s death.
He called on the government to, as a matter of urgency, correct that anomaly to avoid deaths of that nature in future by making available more ambulances at vantage places to save lives.
Apostle Agbalenyoh said it was difficult to comprehend how a whole Airforce Base will be without an ambulance for emergency cases like that of the late veep, stressing that that must be corrected as early as possible.
“I am sad to listen to Okyehene’s narration on how the late former vice-president was conveyed in a private vehicle to the hospital, so think that that kind of method must stop as we grow as a nation,” he advised.
Apostle Agbalenyoh recounted that it was the same circumstance that was reported to have occurred during the demise of the late President J.E.A. Mills when he was being rushed to the 37 Military Hospital in a private vehicle, stressing that this must not be allowed to continue.
He noted that the current government had a great responsibility to provide more ambulances to where they are supposed to be, to get emergency cases to be handled on time.
He said that it was incumbent on the state to take good care of its people, especially the president and his vice and even those of them who were out of power.
Apostle Agbalenyoh further called on all Ghanaians to make it a civic duty to impress upon the government to provide ambulances to vantages places to the benefit of the entire nation.
The man of God, however, lauded the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for announcing a state burial for the late veep.
