Secret behind the death of Hon.Philip Basoah – MP of Kumawu
The (NPP) Member of Parliament for the Kumawu constituency in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, Philip Atta Basoah has passed on.
According to family reports, he died early morning on Tuesday, March 28 at the age of 53 at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
Philip Basoah was legitimately member of the three MPs including Dome-Kwabenya MP, Adwoa Safo, and Asssin North MP, Gyakye Quayson who did not participate in the voting of the ministerial nominees last Friday, March 24, 2023, due to ill health.
Neither his Personal Assistant nor anyone close to him knew his whereabouts until his room was forcibly opened, only to find him collapsed.
He was rushed to the hospital in a coma but passed away while plans were underway to fly him out for further care.
Basoah, in parliament on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), was in Parliament on Thursday, March 23, to participate in parliamentary work.
The next day, Friday, was deemed critical where the Majority and Minority caucuses needed their full members to vote, given their then-avowed positions to vote.
