“The name Rev Nyansako-ni-Nku occupied my mind from Sunday school, YP, and CYF until the day you ordained me. I was planning to pay him a visit, just to hear that he has gone home to be with the Lord. I thank God for laying your hands on me during my ordination. You personally handed me my bachelor's degree in the seminary for my distinction. You have groomed sons and daughters to follow you in your footsteps. The Ramah family will keep you and your family in prayers,” said Rev. Solomon Warah, a former pastor of the PCC.
