Reports of the death of Hon. Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko went viral yesterday and it has left many Ghanaians shocked for such sad news.
According to reports, Hon. Kyeremantang Agyarko suffered a protracted illness and gave in to the sickness at a hospital in the United States where he had gone to seek treatment. It has however not been revealed which type of illness it was.
A protracted illness is a sickness (could be severe) illness that does not last for a very long. Mostly it does not last for more than some few months, unlike Chronic sickness. Chronic illness on the other is the illness that may not be severe but last for a long time
The late Agyarko’s Facebook post in August this year about his reaction to the death of a constituent who came to him for support demonstrated the kind of person he was. A kind-hearted man indeed.
The post read:
“A constituent who has not been very well visited me in my office at Parliament House this afternoon. On her way out I suggested to her to go through the clinic in Parliament to check her blood pressure. Five minutes after she left my office she called and said she was in the clinic and was not feeling well. The young doctor mentioned she needed urgent care so the ambulance took her to the Ridge hospital. I followed up to the hospital within the hour. When I got to the emergency room I was informed she had passed. WHHAAAAAAAATTTTTT.”
“I can’t fathom my experience this evening. I am asking myself, what are we and what are we doing here.”
“The psalmist said in Psalm 90 v 12, Lord teach me to number my days that I may apply my heart unto wisdom.”
“This life my brother,enfa yen nkosi hweeeeeee”
Mr Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko was a former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Food and Drugs Authority and brother to former Minister of Energy, Boakye Kyeremateng Agyarko.
Since news of his death, many, irrespective of their political inclination have shared fond memories of the lawmaker describing him as a loving person.
