The founder of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom says Ghana, in its current state where there is a desperate need for the good counsel of statesmen and women will miss the late Paul Victor Obeng.
A post on his Facebook page said: “He will be missed especially during this period in our nation when we need unity of purpose and when we have a desperate need for statesmen and women to stop forward and pull all our efforts in the same direction.”
Dr. Nduom remarked that Ghana has lost one of its long serving public servants.
He recalled that he was not present in the country “when he [PV Obeng] was with the PNDC administration. I knew him post-PNDC and to me, he was a kind, civil and hardworking person.”
PV Obeng died on Saturday of suspected asthma attack.
He was the senior advisor to the President, John Mahama, and the chairman of the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC).
