Late Dr. Kwabena Adjei of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been eulogized by President Akufo-Addo.
The former national chairman of the NDC passed away on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, formerly Ridge hospital.
In a post on Facebook, President Akufo-Addo described the late Kwabena Adjei as "Man of strong opinion" and "Formidable Opponent".
The post read: Sad to hear of the passing of Dr Kwabena Adjei. He was a friend, whom I met in the 2nd parliament of the 4th Republic. He was then Majority Leader and gave good leadership to the House. Man of strong opinions, he was a formidable opponent, and I enjoyed very much our interactions. His relationship with our “boss”, the late, great JH Mensah, then Minority Leader, provided a big boost for the work of Parliament and for the advancement of our democracy. He will be missed. My condolences to his party, the National Democratic Congress, and to his family. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
Dr Kwabena Adjei was the chairman when the NDC won power in 2008.
Dr. Adjei graduated with a Ph.D. (Research Methods and Statistics in Psychology) from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, U.K in 1973.
He ventured into politics in 1978, getting elected as a Council Member of the Jasikan District Council in the Volta region.
