The NPP in a press statement signed by the General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, directed “all party flags to fly at half-mast for the next seven days” in honour of the late Deputy Finance Minister.

The party noted that Mr Kumah demonstrated a profound passion and commitment to the needs of his constituents, thus, resulting in his acclamation as the party’s 2024 Parliamentary candidate for the constituency.

“The NPP takes solace in his legacy of hard work and dedication to our dear country and extends our deepest condolences to the bereaved family, particularly his wife and children and the people of Ejisu for this great loss.”

The Deputy Minister for Finance, Dr. John Kumah, passed away aged 45 years.

He left  behind a legacy as a devoted family man, being survived by his wife, Apostle Mrs. Lilian Kumah, and six children.

Notably, Dr Kumah served as the inaugural Chief Executive Officer for the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP), where he played a crucial role in positioning NEIP as a key player in Ghana’s entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Under his leadership, NEIP trained 7,000 startups in 2018 through the Presidential Business Support Programme, and provided financial support to 1,350 beneficiaries.

He was then appointed Deputy Minister of Finance in April 2021.
