Staff of the central bank, where the late former vice president Kwesi Bekoe Amissah- Arthur worked before becoming a vice president, have in a eulogy described him as “meticulous” and a “team player”.
Governor of the bank, Ernest Addison, who spoke on behalf of the staff expressed shock at the sudden demise but recounted the contribution of the late former vice president while at the Bank of Ghana.
“He was very meticulous in his work, he worked as a team and very very supportive of all his staff and a true leader encouraging the staff with their work.”
He said the staff of BoG will never forget Kwesi Amissah-Arthur for his contribution to their welfare.
“As I said the Bank of Ghana staff will always remember him because of some of the welfare improvement that they saw during the tenure of the former vice president as a governor of the bank,” he said.
Mr. Addison recounted his personal encounter with the late vice president from their days in the University of Ghana, Legon where he was a student and Amissah-Arthur a lecturer at the Economics department, through to their days as workers in the Bank of Ghana.
“I have known former vice president over 30 years, first as a part-time lecturer at the economics department at Legon when I was a student in the economics department… in 2008 when he was appointed the governor of the Bank of Ghana we got to work together again”
He said the former vice president was “ very kind, very thoughtful and very pleasant person to be with”.
The staff conveyed their condolences to the bereaved family and prays for a peaceful rest for the late former vice president.
