The former politician and Ghanaian traditional ruler was elected member of the National Assembly (Wala North) in 1956, and at a point served as the Minister of Labour, Social Welfare and Cooperatives, and Minister of Transport and Communication between 1969 and 1972.
He died on 6 June 1998. In contributing to the statement, Nana Akufo-Addo described the late Jatoe Kaleo as an astute politician who exemplified tenacity of purpose, commitment to principle, and a stalwart defender of freedom and the rule of law “Mr. Speaker these are the qualities that the nation is looking for in those who are leading us today: that people will take decisions and arrive at conclusions based on principles, based on their understanding of what is right and what is wrong.”
