John Dramani Mahama joined the family, friends and colleagues of his friend, comrade and brother, Kwesi Sainti Baffoe Bonnie (Babo) at the Agape Church on Saturday for his burial service and funeral.
Babo indeed was both a friend and brother to him, just as he was to many others. He had an arresting sense of loyalty and duty. Nothing could faze him once he pledged his support and commitment to any goal or objective, he set himself.
Babo served as John Dramani Mahama’s Senior Advisor on Political Affairs when I was Vice President. Later on, when I became President, He appointed him as his Senior Presidential Staffer. They worked closely in government for eight years. As was expected, he distinguished himself in all these roles.
John Dramini Mahama have lost a friend and brother. The NDC party has lost a dependable son. Our nation has lost a media icon. His wife Naana and the children have lost a loving husband and a kind father.
Babo, may your soul rest in perfect peace.
