The Akufo Addo administration has renamed the Moree Senior High School in the Central Region after the late former Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah Arthur.
Government’s decision was reached in consultation with the family of the late former second gentleman of the land.
Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia made the announcement while reading a tribute on behalf of President Akufo Addo at the funeral ceremony of the late former Vice President at the Accra International Conference Centre.
The youth in the Abura-Aseibu Kwamankese District of the Central region a day ago appealed to government to rename the only senior high school in the hometown of the Late Vice President Paa Kwesi Bekoe Amissah Arthur after him.
The move according to the youth, is the surest way of immortalising the memory of the late Veep especially in the area.
The late Amissah-Arthur, according to the youth who operate under the umbrella of “Young Democrats Movement of Abura-Aseibu-Kwamankese” was indeed instrumental in the construction of the school hence rewarding his sweat even in his grave.
The late Veep, they add has indeed paid his dues in ensuring development in the area including coming to the rescue of the said school any time the need arose thereby calling for the renaming as a sign of appreciation to the departing Veep.
A burial service will be held at the International Conference Centre in his memory after which a cortege will march the remains through some principal streets of Accra before the interment at the newly built Military cemetery at Burma Camp.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur died on June 29 at the 37 militray hospital after reportedly collapsing at the Air Force Gym while exercising.
