Mahama said the death of KABA should help the country turn its attention to health care delivery.
Mahama in the company of members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) including former Chief of Staff Julius Debrah, Greater Regional Chairman Ade Coker, Alhaji ABA Fuseini on Wednesday commiserated with the Multimedia family.
He described the late presenter as a "man with his own style", who "puts the chips where they were."
"It is that harsh objectivity we are going to miss," he said.
KABA petered out last Saturday, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, following a short illness.
