President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has eulogised the late Dr Kwabena Adjei, the former national chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), who died Tuesday morning at age 76.

In a post on Facebook, President Akufo-Addo said Dr Kwabena Adjei was a “formidable opponent”.

“Sad to hear of the passing of Dr Kwabena Adjei. He was a friend, whom I met in the 2nd parliament of the 4th Republic," President Akufo-Addo wrote.

Adding, he wrote, "He was the then-Majority Leader and gave good leadership to the House. Man of strong opinions, he was a formidable opponent, and I enjoyed very much our interactions. His relationship with our “boss”, the late, great J.H. Mensah, then-Minority Leader, provided a big boost for the work of Parliament and for the advancement of our democracy. He will be missed. My condolences to his party, the National Democratic Congress, and to his family. May his soul rest in perfect peace,” President Akufo-Addo wrote.
