28722709STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT JOHN DRAMANI MAHAMA ON THE DEATH OF MR. PAUL VICTOR OBENG

This is a very sad and tragic moment for me, for Ghana and for Ghanaians.

The sudden death of my Senior Adviser and Mentor, Mr. Paul Victor Obeng, has left us in a state of shock and disbelief. The energetic encourager we all simply called PV is no more.

At this moment, my deepest condolences and sympathies, as well as those of my Government, the NDC party, and indeed the whole nation are with his widow, Mrs. Rose Obeng, and all members of his family.

We have lost a tireless public servant, an admirable unifier and giant of our political landscape over the past 30-plus years. PV Obeng has been a passionate nationalist and patriot, full of practical ideas, solutions and optimism, for the good of Ghana and Ghanaians.

I have leaned on him many times for advice, guidance and support. He was always there to bring his vast experience, institutional knowledge and great connections across many sections of Ghanaian society, to bear on any challenges we have faced.

Just last Thursday at the National Economic Forum in Senchi he was ebullient, forward-looking and full of vigour, as he offered his wise counsel throughout the proceedings and to the conclusion of that important event.

I will miss him dearly.

With his affable, jovial and engaging manner you could always count on him to bring some unique perspectives into discussions. At this sad moment, our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and the entire family.

May his soul rest in perfect peace.
