Your name is inscribed in the history books of Bawku and Ghana as a man who made great sacrifices to serve his people.
Your breakthrough to the political scene was highly joyous, not because there were no options, rather you were our hope, a new dawn and the future of our people.
You had the opportunity to represent your people haven won 2008 parliamentary seat for Bawku central, but the greed of men and the words of the land denied you an opportunity.
Your political leadership qualities was never under scrutiny because your voice was suppressed and you faces tribulations and the very people who deny us the full benefit’s of your service to your people have failed us either. Posterity indeed is the judge…
Your political life, integrity, interpersonal relation and sense of humanity are positive lessons we can draw to make this world a better place.
Oh! Allah what a sinful world?
Good men indeed don’t live long; their legacies will continue to live on…
Your passing today is in fulfilment of Allah’s words in the Holy Qur an which says Kunli Nafti Zalikatul Monti (All Souls Shall Taste Death).
I joined many people in Bawku, and beyond to say May Allah Have Mercy on Your Soul!!!
