In a public statement, the Communications Officer of the North Tongu Constituency Mr. Mornyuie Kennedy said, “We are aware the North Tongu fraternity is with baited breath expecting to hear this sad news from their most trusted communications unit of NDC North Tongu to confirm or deny the report. We expected the family to officially issue a statement in that regard but it’s never coming. Per what we gathered so far from family sources, the family is unwilling to put the issue into the public sphere as yet citing Covid-19 as the major determining factor” He explained.
