NDC mourns Komla Dumour

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has received with shock the death of Mr. Komla Dumor, a Ghanaian broadcaster with the BBC.

Mr. Dumor was one of Ghana’s distinguished broadcasters, whose dedication and hardwork earned him both local and international reputation. The NDC saw him as a committed broadcaster, with an unquestionable urge to pursue the cardinal principles of his profession – “loyalty to the people.” This zeal to defend the people was vividly demonstrated in his expression, “for the benefit of our listeners.”

We also remember him as an astute media practitioner with unflinching passion for the development of Ghana’s fledgling democracy which has become a beacon of Africa in democracy and multi-party practices. Indeed his role in Ghana’s democracy manifested in his desire to pursue issues of interest to their logical conclusion through interviews.

The NDC on this occasion extends its sympathies to the family of the deceased, especially his wife and children. We wish also, to express our deepest condolences to the staff of Multimedia and the BBC, former and current employers respectively, before his demise.

SIGNED – 19/1/14
Johnson Asiedu Nketiah,
General Secretary.
