He had come for the funeral of the Chairman of Zoomlion, Agyepong, and I greeted him, and he congratulated me on 30 years of marriage. And I said, I heard he’s been married for 60 years to mother Theresa, and he confirmed in the affirmative then I said ‘then Sergeant throw way salute to general.’
“He’s done double so I saluted him. We hope we can all get there,” he told TV3’s Alfred Ocansey who had congratulated him on his marriage anniversary.
