The late John Tia Akologo, a former Minister of Information who served under the leadership of the late John Evans Atta-Mills, has been laid to rest.

He was buried in his hometown, Duusi, in the Talensi District of the Upper East Region over the weekend.

The late Akologo died on Sunday, March 24, 2024, at the Upper East Regional Hospital in Bolgatanga after a short illness at 69.

He left behind four children and a wife.

In a solemn tribute, former President Mahama eulogised the late Akologo for his immense contribution to the growth of the NDC party and the nation at large.

According to Mr Mahama, the former late MP for Talensi Constituency was a true cadre and party man who was committed to the 31st December Revolution and played critical roles under the Fourth Republic.

“If all of us were able to carve a successful career in parliament, it was because senior brothers like John Tia were there to hold our hands and teach us the tenets of being a good parliamentarian,” he stated.

He added that there was time for everything, “so we pray God will accept our supplications and grant our comrade entry into paradise”.

Political party executives from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and other parties attended the funeral.

Other attendees were traditional rulers, members of the United Cadres Front, and Cuban Doctors.

A delegation of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) led by its flagbearer, former President John Dramani Mahama, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, Chairman of the party and other MPs and party faithful joined the family for the private burial rites.

The late Tia Akologo will always be remembered by his party members for being one of the long-serving legislators.

He served as the Member of Parliament for the Talensi Constituency in the Upper East Region for five consecutive terms from 1993 to 2012.

In 2012, he lost the parliamentary election to Robert Nachinaab Doameng Mosore of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Following his defeat, he was appointed Ghana’s Ambassador to Cuba during former President John Dramani Mahama’s administration.
