Former Minister of Agriculture and Health is Dead

Major Courage Quashigah (rtd), the last Minister of Health in the Kufuor regime, has passed away. He died yesterday at an Israeli health facility.

The former military officer, who also served as Minister for Agriculture, for a long time nursed a waist ailment which he attributed to his incarceration after he was arrested for allegedly trying to overthrow the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC) junta.

Minister of Agriculture and Health, is dead, a family spokesperson told the Mr Kobla Asamani, Executive Officer at the Office of Major Quashigah, on Tuesday, described the death as “sad news” and “a major blow”.

“The loss is not only to the family but to the nation as a whole,” he said in a tribute.

Major Quashiga’s health condition and his subsequent departure for treatment became a subject of negative politics when it grabbed the headlines in an Accra-based newspaper, under the title, ‘Quashiga Is Dying’.

Last year, news about his admission at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after a mild stroke made the rounds on the media landscape.

Many news hounds that thronged the medical facility could not make any headway as hospital authorities maintained tight lips when asked about the veracity of the man’s condition.

News about the former military officer’s death did not surprise those who had an inkling about his deteriorating health condition since last year.
