Dr Prince Hamid Armah, the MP for Kwesimintsim Constituency, has shared a deeply emotional tribute to the late deputy finance minister, Dr John Ampontuah Kumah, who passed on Thursday (March 7) due to ill-health.

He was 45 years old.

Their friendship, spanning nearly two decades, was marked by camaraderie, shared experiences, and mutual respect, making Armah’s loss profoundly personal, he wrote in a Facebook post.

In a short tribute on his Facebook wall, Armah recounted the cherished memories and invaluable moments he shared with Kumah, emphasising not only their professional camaraderie but also the deep bond of friendship that united them.

As he reflected on their journey together, Armah’s words resonated with profound sorrow, tinged with a sense of disbelief at the sudden departure of his dear friend and colleague.

“Even though this loss is debilitating and utterly crushing, I am proud of the immense contributions he made to our party, and the selfless service he offered to his constituents. I can only find consolation that he is resting in the bosom of our Lord following his brief but truly fulfilling life here on earth,” the deputy minister-designate for works and housing wrote.

His tribute echoed the sentiments of many who had the privilege of knowing 45-year-old Kumah, underscoring his remarkable contributions to the NPP party and the nation as a whole.

“I express my most heartfelt condolences to the family of my late friend. I pray the GOOD LORD grants you divine strength and comfort to endure this truly sorrowful period.

“May we all remember Dr. John Kumah for his generosity, selflessness, hard work and commitment to excellence. He shall forever remain in our hearts – as a bright flame that burnt out too soon. May he rest in peace forever,” Armah added.

Kumah left behind a wife and six children.
