Most. Rev. Dr.Asante Antwi served Ghana diligently.
He really played an integral role in the transition from military regime to democratic dispensation. He was fearless and was not cowed by arbitrary use of power.
My condolences to the immediate family, the Church and his loved ones.
I will miss Papa.
Rest in peace man of God until we meet again."
