The Tarkwa Nsuaem constituency chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Samuel Kofi Osei Boamah has died at age 70.

Mr. Osei Boamah, popularly known as Chairman Africana until his demise was the chairman for the party from 1997-2000 and later re-elected on December 21, 2013 for the same position.

He was a farmer and a businessman.

Confirming his demise to pulse.com.gh, the second constituency vice chairman of the party Gilbert Ken Asmah narrated that “he was not feeling well yesterday. He complained of neck pains and so he left for the Old Tarkwa Government Hospital all by himself. But around midnight, the neck pain had become a heart issue. So around 5am when I went to the hospital, the attendant in charge met me and announced his death to me”.

Mr. Asmah eulogized his selflessness and hard work noticing that, “even though I was the 2 vice chairman, he never avoided me in any decision he had to take. It was through his hard work that after serving in the 1990s to bring the NPP to power in 2000, delegates did not hesitate to reelect him in December 2013. Indeed, we have lost a great pillar in the party”.  

Mr. Asmah noted that the family members who are at Obomeng Kwahu in the Easatern Region are yet to announce his funeral arrangement while his body is kept at the Old Tarkwa Government Hospital.
