The Member of Parliament for Tema East, Titus Glover has called for a probe to find out who was behind the public circulation of the picture of the mortal remains of the Pictures of former Chairman of the National Development Planning Commission and Senior Presidential Adviser, Mr Paul Victor Obeng.

He described the unfortunate act as very despicable and condemnable which violatates the respect and privacy of the bereaved family and the right to dignity of Mr P. V. Obeng.

Pictures of one of Ghana’s experienced politicians lying at the morgue went virile first on social media platforms such as Whatsapp and Facebook on Sunday, a day after he died.

Monday May 19, 2014 edition of the Daily Guide newspaper also published a picture of the deceased in the morgue, which was greeted with a lot of condemnation from the National Media Commission and a section of the public alike.

Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show on Tuesday, Hon. Titus Glover extolled the virtues of Mr P.V Obeng who he described as a political colossus whose over thirty years of political experience contributed to ensuring the growth of Ghana.

He re-countered how the development of Tema which was where he resided was dear to his heart and the efforts he contributed to seeing the advancement of the Metropolis.

“I suggest that we name a street in Tema after Mr P.V Obeng who is an illustrious son of the soil, or further more one of the state awards could be named after him in his memory for his tremendous efforts, and I think this will not amount to me asking for too much” Mr Titus Glover said.
