A DELEGATION from the Volta Regional Co-ordinating Council on Monday met the chiefs, family members and Biakoye District Assembly staff to mourn with them over the departed District Chief Executive, Nana Louis Akattah.
The delegation, led by the Volta Regional Minister, Ms Helen Ntoso, included her deputy, Francis Ganyaglo, the 23 District Chief Executives of the region and party executives from the district.
Ms Ntoso, on behalf of the region, consoled the chiefs, family members and his staff, saying his death came as a surprise to many since Nana Akattah did not show any sign of prolonged sickness.
She said during President Mahama’s recent visit to Ho, he took part in all the activities, adding that “it is therefore a shock to all to see this strong man who fell sick only for three days passing away like that”.
She said nobody could question God for taking his life, and urged them to pray for his family especially, the wife and children.
The Member of Parliament for Biakoye, Emmanuel Bandua, called for unity and peace in the area so that they could together give the DCE a befitting burial.
He gave the assurance that they would work hand in hand to support the family in this trying time.
Mr. Stephen Amedza, a spokesperson for the chiefs and elders, thanked the delegation for mourning with them.
He prayed that everything would be done in an orderly manner to give the departed DCE a befitting burial.
Nana Akattah, 66, left behind a wife and six children.
