The late sports enthusiast was the GFA President between 1997 and 2001.
In a statement signed by party secretary general Justin Kodua Frimpong, the party expressed its heartfelt condolences to his immediate family, the people of Kepembe Traditional Area, the football community and the rest of the nation.
Death of Alhaji Zawula “A great loss to this country and the NPP in particular.”
Late Alhaji Jawula was a long standing and stalwart member of the NPP. He was selected as the party’s runner-up ahead of the 2008 general elections, at which time he was willing to relinquish his traditional powers to serve the NPP and the Republic in that capacity, the statement said.
“Late Traditional Ruler of Kepembe Traditional Area, Savannah Province, Lepowura Alhaji Mohammed Nurudeen-Deen Zawula proved himself to be a distinguished statesman who served in civil and public services for thirty years.”
“He rose through the ranks and headed various directorates in the Ministries of Health, Finance, as well as Ports and Railways.”
Javula was the Chairman of the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) and also served as Lepowura of Kujolobito Gate, Lepo-Kpembe, Northern Territory.
