  2. the sudden demise of the hon. minister is a very sorrowful and painful blow to all ghanaians in general and the late minister’s family in particular.
    its my sincere hope and wish that his soul rests in perfect peace for all his good deeds for mother ghana

  3. sorry for the irreparable death.

  4. I am really shocked. He’s not!

  5. As a member of the Party and a Ghanaian, I am saddened by the Hon. Minister’s passing. However, I would have hoped and expected some little more information about the cause of death of this Amanfo. This would minimize and/or stop erroneous speculation about cause(s) of death of many of our brothers/sisters in Africa. For, many people are quick to assign bogus reasons for the death of Africans in particular.
    May he rest in peace.

  6. The man K. Baah Wiredu in my opinion the finest Finance Minister he country Ghana has ever had. He death has shaken the foundation of the country and my only hope is that all and sundry in the country who love peace will take que from this and leave a lasting impression as our Honorable minister has done. It is only The Almighty who knows best and why He calls good ones home so early.
