K.B was a ‘patriot’ – Nduom

Founder of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has described the late K.B. Asante as an “unapologetic patriot.”

Mr Asante, 93, was announced to have passed away on Monday, 22 January 2018.

In a tribute to the former Secretary to Dr Kwame Nkrumah on his Facebook wall, Dr Nduom wrote: “Mr. K. B. Asante, who deserved fully the titles ‘Honourable’ and ‘Excellency’, has passed on to eternity.

“He has become an ancestor. In an environment where people talk freely with abandon, not caring who they hurt or the damage they do to the nation, he was a wonderful exception.

“He did not go quietly and we are grateful for that because he used his voice to teach, to tell our history and to give leadership when others who also could speak remained silent.

“I am glad that the good Lord allowed him to remain with us for so long through our various ‘republics’ to bear testimony and express his views through his giant lenses.

“I am grateful for his life. Ghanaians must recognise his contribution.

“Thank you to a true elder, an uncompromising patriot!”

Mr Asante also served as the principal secretary at the African Affairs Secretariat from 1960 to 1966.
