A delegation of high ranking officials from the National Democratic Congress (NDC), have paid their last respects to Reverend Dr Nii Kwatelai Owoo, member of the party, at his memorial service.
Rev Owoo born on February 20, 1962, passed on after a short illness at the Ridge Hospital on October 29, 2017, aged 55.
Nii Lante Vanderpuye, Member of Parliament (MP) for the Odododiodioo Constituency of the NDC who led the delegation, in a tribute to the founding member, described Rev Owoo as a generous person whose contribution was felt in the entire society.
He said the vacuum created by Rev Owoo’s departure would be difficult to be fill and expressed the hope that the youth he had nurtured would continue with his vision.
Nii Vanderpuye said, ” In fact we have lost a great leader, unifier and a mentor who we will miss forever because through his efforts the NDC attained dominance in the constituency when it comes to rallying the youth”.
Bishop Inshiraba Donkor, of the Kings Word Ministry at Dansoman Zone 6, paying a similar tribute to Rev Owoo, urged Christians to emulate the good works of Jesus Christ, adding that,” What you do on this earth must have an impact on someone else”.
‘Our departed brother’s prescription are still relevant in addressing the social and economic problems confronting the people of Odododiodioo, such as helping the poor and aged, and paying of school fees for the needy children of his church”, he said.
‘A man can die but his good works will still be relevant on this earth, adding that, God knows those who died in His name”.
Rev Owoo was the founder of the Rejected Corner Stone International Ministries, President of the Odododiodioo Local Council of Churches and a founding member of the NDC.
He was married to Mrs Lillian Amorkor Turkson-Owoo and survived with seven children.
