In a Facebook post, Mrs. Osei who was removed as EC chair by President Akufo-Addo Thursday night, wrote: “My heart is truly broken this morning by the very saddened and extremely sad passing away of HE. Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur.

The Former Vice President was a gentleman among gentlemen, always dignified and respectful of all others regardless of their stature in life.

He was restrained in his politics, exceptionally brilliant and full of integrity. This is a sad loss for this country, may God give his family strength and comfort. May God grant him a peaceful rest”.
