This was contained in a statement signed by Pope Yao Yevoo, the party’s Regional Communications Director on Wednesday.
“The NPP Volta led by its Chairman, Makafui Kofi Woanyah, has received with shock and sadness, news of the passing of Mr Marlon Praise Anipa, the first District Chief Executive of the newly created Guan District in the Oti Region.
“The party, accordingly, extends its deep sympathies to the wife, children and the bereaved family as well as the good people of Akpafu Todzi and for that matter Oti Region for this great loss,” it said.
