Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has expressed shock and sorrow at the sudden death of popular talk-show host, Kojo Asare Bafour-Acheampong aka KABA, last Saturday after a short illness.

Former President Kufuor described the late KABA, who was, host of Asempa FM’s flagship afternoon program, ‘Ekosi Sen’ as a “young promising talent whose life has been cut short at its prime.” That's according to a statement from the former president's office.

The statement which was signed and issued by his Spokesperson and Special Aide, Frank Agyekum, and copied to GBCONLINE, said the late KABA “brought balance to bear in his interviews and captured the attention of his audience with his incisive questions.”

Former President Kufuor said KABA was like a family to him and recalled, that he introduced his wife to him before their wedding, which he attended, and also that KABA visited him in his house, a few weeks ago.

“Nothing could have prepared us for such a sudden loss. I pray for strength and forbearance for his wife, child, family and close ones. Ghana has lost a great potential. Journalism has lost an even greater prospect,” Former President Kufuor said.

May his soul Rest in Peace. The statement concluded.
