The late Sir John

Information gathered by Classfmonline.com indicates that Mr Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known in politics as ‘Sir John’, has died.

Sources within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) say the former General Secretary passed away on Wednesday while in intensive care as a result of COVID-19.

The head of the Forestry Commission was on a ventilator before his death.

Sir John became famous for the phrase 'fear delegates' after losing his re-election bid as a General Secretary of the NPP despite having been promised victory by the delegates.
