Speaker Bagbin Pays Tribute to Late Modestus Ahiable, Describing Him as a Man of Conviction

Speaker Alban S. K. Bagbin has paid tribute to the late Modestus Ahiable, describing him as a man of conviction who approached his endeavors with calculated precision and strong principles. Ahiable, who was the former regional chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), passed away recently.

According to Speaker Bagbin, Ahiable’s principled nature endeared him to the late former President Jerry John Rawlings, who appointed him regional minister for the Volta Region. Bagbin made these remarks when the family of the late Ahiable visited him in Parliament to formally announce his passing and share details of the funeral arrangements.

The family, led by the Member of Parliament for the Ketu North Constituency, Hon James Klutse Avedzi, who is also chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, informed Speaker Bagbin that the mortal remains of Mr. Ahiable would be laid to rest on April 27, 2024, in Dzodze, Volta Region.

Speaker Bagbin emphasized the importance of celebrating the contributions and memory of individuals like Ahiable, who dedicated their lives to serving their nation. He noted that such recognition helps to inspire younger generations to commit themselves to a life of service.

Recalling his personal interactions with Ahiable, Speaker Bagbin praised his wisdom and support, especially during his tenure as minority leader. He described Ahiable’s passing as a great loss to humanity, the country, the NDC, and the family.

“When I was a minority leader, these were the men of wisdom whose support I could count on in my moments of difficulty. He sparingly spoke and when he did, you will see commitment in it,”-Speaker Bagbin said.

In closing, Speaker Bagbin assured the family that Parliament would support them in giving Ahiable a befitting burial. The late Modestus Ahiable was popularly known as ‘Eku’ and was respected for his sparing but impactful words, reflecting his deep commitment to his principles and convictions.
