Sir John is the only ‘knight’ in Ghanaian politics – Akufo-Addo

    The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has described the late Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Forestry Commission, Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John as the only ‘knight’ in Ghana’s politics.

    In a tribute he read at the final funeral rites of the late Lawyer, the President said Sir John was always a friend who offered comforting words to him even when he loses elections.

    He recounted how he was energized to stage a comeback despite losing the 2012 elections and the subsequent election petition that followed by a slim margin by a comment from the ex-General Secretary of the NPP party.

    “For me the statement of 3rd September 2013, reinforced my belief that I could always count on Sir John, affectionately known as the only knight in Ghanaian politics, as a true and true Akufo-Addo loyalist and someone I could call good friend…,” he said.
