It is with heavy hearts that we report the passing of former Member of Parliament for Shama in the Western Region, Dr. Ato Panford. According to a family source, Dr. Panford passed away on Sunday morning at the GPHA Hospital in Takoradi.
Dr. Panford was a well-respected figure in the community, serving as a Member of Parliament in the Seventh Parliament of the Fourth Republic. Prior to his passing, he held the position of senior advisor for Enterprise Audit at the AfCFTA National Coordinating Office.

This loss is a reminder of the fragility of life and the impact that Dr. Panford had on those around him. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.
