A memorial mass marking the fifth anniversary of the demise of Paul Victor Obeng has been organised at the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Tema Community Two.

Former President Jerry John Rawlings, National Democratic Congress (NDC) party chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, and other leading members of the party were among the congregants at the memorial mass last Friday.

A former Minister of State, Akwasi Oppong Fosu, in paying tribute to the former leading member of the PNDC and the NDC, said he had a generous heart, was humble and possessed a modest temperament.

He said P.V. Obeng was a committed and devoted servant of God who had the ability to embrace diversity and promote inclusiveness.
Speaking of the impact Obeng had on his family, friends and colleagues, Oppong Fosu said, “Those we love and cherish never die because they live in our hearts.”

Widow of Mr Obeng, Mrs Rose Obeng thanked all who had in diverse ways assisted the family to overcome the loss of their loved one.

She disclosed that a foundation would be established before the end of the year in memory of the legacy of P.V. Obeng.

She also said plans were afoot to beautify the Tema Community Two roundabout named after Mr Obeng.
