Sonetco Institute are stung because a BAOBAB tree has fallen in the forest reserves. He was one of the few baobab tree that young and old goes for knowledge, understanding and wisdoms. This fallen baobab tree was an epitome of practical and developmental growth borne out of love for ones country. When he was called to provide all that he had to give, he never relented but gave of his best.wpid-pv-obeng.jpg
Paul Victor Obeng affectionately called P.V by all and sundry, was extremely down to earth despite his political affiliation he had an open arm for every Ghanaian who came his way.
The sharp edge of death got through this baobab tree on Saturday May 17 2014. He ?was an astute mechanical engineer, politician of a difference and a lover of Kumasi Asante kotoko. He had his secondary education at then Prempeh Collage of one of the prestigious schools and later graduated from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology as a mechanical engineer.
He served mother Ghana in many capacities with the deployment of quality leadership skills as he did as SRC President during his university days as he had Mrs Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings as a secretary of the SRC.
Ing. P. V. Obeng served as the chairman of the Committee of Secretaries under the Provisional National Defence Council regime (PNDC) from 1982 to 1992. From 1992 to 1997 he served as Presidential Adviser on Governmental Affairs under the National Democratic Congress (NDC). P.V. Obeng also served as Chairman of the Ghana Investment Promotion Council (G.I.P.C.) from 1992- 1997.
?In 2010, he was appointed by the President John Atta Mills administration as chairman of the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC).He was the Senior Presidential Adviser to H.E John Dramani Mahama.
In other jurisdiction ?he served as the director on the Board of Guinness Ghana Limited. He was the chief consultant and Chairman of OB Associates, a public and private sector consulting firm and also served as chairman of Ghana Agro and Food company (GAFCO).
He was a gem in the political arena that many of the political divide could easily identify with. He was a lover of sports especially football and his immerse support for Kumasi Asante Kotoko is immeasurable. His contribution to see a better community 2 at Tema is beyond enumeration. He was simply a cheerful giver.
P.V’s life could be summed up as an ambidextrous one. He left behind children and a wife Mrs. Rose Obeng. We are Sonetco Institute empathize with the family and friends of such an illustrious son of the land.
Our condolence to the Obeng family, Asanteman, National Democratic Congress, Asante Kotoko football club and mother
Ghana.
