Samira Bawumia, wife of New Patriotic Party (NPP) vice-presidential candidate Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has described the late Kwabena Boadu as an intelligent, hardworking young man who was liked by everyone.
Mr Boadu was the press aide to her husband. The 29-year-old died at Wa in the Upper West Region during a campaign tour with Dr Bawumia.
“Yesterday was a very sad day for all of us. My husband’s press secretary, Kwabena Boadu, passed on. He was an intelligent, hardworking young man and was liked by everyone. My deepest condolences to his family. We mourn with you all. May his soul rest in peace,” Mrs Bawumia tweeted.
There are rumours Mr Boadu was electrocuted but there has been no confirmation of the circumstances of his death.
Meanwhile, Dr Bawumia mourned Boadu on Facebook saying: “Dear friends, yesterday was one of the saddest days of my life. I lost my younger brother, friend and colleague, Kwabena Boadu, in Wa under circumstances I cannot still understand. Kwabena was simply brilliant, diligent, loyal, and honest. I was most fortunate to have met him. He was mature beyond his years and was a trusted confidant. I am devastated. It is just unbelievable. May his soul rest in perfect peace.”
