Sir John sudden demised happened on Wednesday, July 1 after he contracted the coronavirus.
After the news broke out, numerous condolences came pouring out from Ghanaians as they eulogize how a good man and politician sir John was and his all-time favourite saying “fear delegates”
Sir John was one of the people that convinced President @NAkufoAddo to run for the third time. I remember how he told the president that even if he's in a wheel chair, he's going to push him around to campaign. I wonder how Akufo-Addo must be feeling.

Si John never completed his statements w/o citing a scenario from the Bible or an experienced he’s had in his village.
Upon all these one thing that can NEVER be forgotten about him is “FEAR DELEGATES”. It would be said each and every election year. RIP SIR JOHN. 💔

Wofa Sir John, you didn’t tell me you were leaving us when I spoke with you only yesterday. God knows best indeed. I still remember my first encounter with you at KNUST TESCON meeting at Indece Hall in 2006 and how you motivated our spirits for the NPP.
Rest well, Sir John. pic.twitter.com/znyUgAY53K
