President Akufo-Addo, who was the first statesman to express his sentiments, described the former Veep as a fine public servant in a Facebook post. Immediate past President John Mahama tweeted his chagrin at the loss of his deputy.
Reports indicate that Mr. Amissah-Arthur met his untimely passing after he collapsed at the Airforce Gym at 37 in Accra Friday morning.
It has however emerged that prior to this incident, founder and leader of the Glorious Word Ministry International Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah had called for prayers to be made on behalf of the former Vice President during his New Year prophetic service on January 7, 2018.
At the church service, Rev. Owusu Bempah disclosed that an ex-president of Ghana would die, resulting in a national mourning.
“…there are some people we call Statesmen. Example of such people are the ex-presidents of Ghana. If we don’t pray this year, Ghana will have a big funeral… but we will pray”, he predicted.
The deaths of several high profiled individuals have been predicted by some prophets in the country, drawing lots of criticisms and backlash since the public hold the view that these persons use such incidents to advertise themselves and their churches.
