“As of now, I have tried hard to find answers to the puzzle as to why my daughter could die in such a tragic manner because we provided everything for her and made sure she was always happy. She was my best friend.”
“One thing I have learnt from the death of my daughter is that this unfortunate incident could happen to anybody or any family and that as parents we need to constantly pray for our children in school so that such things do not befall them,” he added.
He said after the message was relayed to him in Parliament, he fervently prayed hoping that the news was an early ‘April fool’ news.
He said it was a trying moment for him and the family when he eventually met the school authorities and the body of his daughter was shown to him at the morgue of the university hospital.
The MP said his daughter was a lively lady who was jovial and always looked happy and that it’s so sad that he had lost her in such circumstance.
He was quick to add that as a Christian he had taken consolation from the fact that “It is God who gives and it is God who takes.”
He added that he was grateful to his friends, family members, colleague MPs and members of the public who have shared words of encouragement with him and his family in this trying times.
The family announced that the young lady would be buried on Saturday, March 4, at Patrensa, near Konongo in the Ashanti Region, after a memorial service had been held for her at the KNUST campus in the morning.
