Ex WO1 Paul Coffei Sebastian Ahedemla, affectionately known as “WO” by many, was born on January 18, 1950, as the second child of Madam Afi Dugbaza and the first son of Tsidi Ahedemla, both of blessed memories. From an early age, Paul displayed a strong work ethic, never shying away from household chores, a trait that would define his life.
After completing elementary school, he embarked on a journey of service, joining the Ghana Air Force. He was initially stationed at Burma Camp, where he dutifully served for several years before being transferred to Bawah Barracks in Tamale. It was during these years that Mr. Paul played a pivotal role as one of the junior-ranked officers in the release of Ex Flt Jerry John Rawlings from prison, a significant moment in Ghana’s history during the 1981 coup d’état.
Paul’s commitment to service extended beyond Ghana’s borders, as he served in both domestic and international missions under the United Nations and African Union banners, showcasing his dedication to global peace and security.
In the midst of his service to the nation, Paul found his soulmate in the form of Mrs. Vivian Norgbe. Their union blossomed, resulting in the joyous arrival of eight beautiful children, with six lovely daughters and two strong sons. To his children, he was simply “Daddy,” a man of unwavering discipline, a true rock of stability in their lives.
In his interactions with his brothers, male cousins, nephews, grandchildren, and male friends, Paul was known as “Neye Bro,” a term signifying the bond of brotherhood that he cherished.
In 2009, after years of dedicated service, Paul retired from his military duties and relocated to Dodowa with his loving family. Despite leaving the military, he remained strong and active, savoring the simple pleasures of life in his retirement.
However, fate had other plans. A sudden illness struck, and Paul Coffei Sebastian Ahedemla was swiftly taken to Dodowa Hospital, where he initially showed signs of recovery. Sadly, the illness intensified, and he was transferred to the 37 Military Hospital, where, on the afternoon of August 25, 2023, he peacefully passed away.
Paul Coffei Sebastian Ahedemla’s life was a testament to hard work, dedication, and unwavering commitment to both his family and his nation. He leaves behind a legacy of love, discipline, and a profound impact on all those fortunate enough to have known him. May his memory be a source of inspiration and strength to all who remember him.
