The flag-bearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has announced the setting up of a fund, with an initial capital of GH¢100,000, for the upkeep of the family of the late Adams Mahama, the  former NPP Upper East Chairman.

He made this known when he paid a tribute to the late Adams at the Adua held at Jubilee Park in Bolgatanga on Sunday, June 7, 2015.

“In addition to the amount of GH¢43,000 that has been donated by the party to the family and widow, and the GH¢90,000 that the Regional Chairmen have setup as a foundation for them, it is my responsibility to ensure that the party fund, as already promised, is established to take care of the education of the children and the maintenance of the widow. The initial capital is GH¢100,000. Additional contributions from sympathisers and well-wishers are, of course, welcome”, he said.

Nana Addo urged party members to wait patiently for the police to conclude their investigations on the killers of the late Adams Mahama.

“So far, it appears they are doing a good job, and we expect them to continue to do so and not to be influenced in any way by political pressure of any sort. We take on board the reassurance given us by the Minister for the Interior that the President of the Republic continues to insist that justice will be done to Adams. But, I will state again what I said on May 29, 2015: we shall not be satisfied with anything less than the arrest and successful prosecution of the killers of Chairman Adams. There should be no ifs and buts", he maintained.

Adams Mahama suffered an acid attack on his way home from a construction site on the 20th of May 2015 and later died of extensive acid burns.

Already two people, Gregory Afoko who is the younger brother of National Chairman of the NPP Paul Afoko and Asabke Alangbiho have been put before court for the murder of the Upper East chairman of the NPP.

Musah Issah who is alleged to have bought the acid used for the attack on the late Adams Mahama has been charged with abetment of crime and murder.
