President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia have led the tributes for the late Clement Kubindiwu Tedam (C. K. Tedam) who died in the early hours of today, Friday, April 26, 2019.
President Akufo-Addo in a Facebook post eulogising Mr Tedam described him as “a great Ghanaian patriot, a stalwart and legend of the New Patriotic Party.”
According to Akufo-Addo, age did not diminish Mr Tedam's commitment to the cause of the NPP, and, despite his advanced age, he was very active in the affairs of the party until his demise.
He posted: "C.K. Tedam leaves a big void not only in the NPP family and in the Ghanaian nation, but also in my personal life, as he was a constant and consistent source of good, invaluable counsel. I will miss him dearly.
