The one-week remembrance ceremony for the late former National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr Kwabena Adjei, has been scheduled for Thursday, 21 March 2019.

The decision was taken after consultations between the bereaved family and the Funeral Committee of the NDC.

The ceremony should have taken place today, Tuesday, 19 March 2019, but the parties involved chose to delay it to allow sufficient time to prepare for the event, as well as the final funeral and burial ceremonies.

Dr Adjei died on Tuesday, 12 March 2019 at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, following a protracted illness.

A Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Barbara Serwaa Asamoah, told Class91.3FM that “on Thursday, we are going to have a church service at the Legon Botanical Garden”.

Meanwhile, the founder of the NDC, former president Jerry John Rawlings, has paid tribute to the former party chairman, describing him as a very strong and passionate man who lived his conviction.

The former president said he had a great deal of respect for Dr Adjei because he stood for his beliefs and was not a materialist.

Describing the late Adjei as a fighter during a call on his family at his Agbogba residence in the outskirts of Accra on Monday, 18 March 2019, Mr Rawlings said the deceased was, however, very sad and disappointed about a lot of things.

“Adjei was disappointed in terms of our own weaknesses as a party. He was disappointed about the politics of our party and the fact that it had been monetised and held hostage. He was hurt about the loss of the value systems of the party,” Mr Rawlings said.

The former president urged the family to stay strong and united during this difficult period and expressed the hope that his children will carry some of his fighting spirit.
