Burial took place in Tamale on Monday November 27, 2006 of Alhaji B.A. Fuseini, former Northern Regional Minister and Ghana's Ambassador to Libya in the NDC administration. He was 63.

He took ill suddenly on Sunday morning and was rushed to the Tamale Regional Hospital where he died around noon.

Alhaji B.A Fuseini was also an NDC Member of Parliament (MP) for Sabongida Gulkpegu (Tamale Central) between 1993 and 1996.

Alhaji Fuseini was a former student of Tamale Secondary School (TAMASCO) and attended University of Cape Coast between 1963 and 1966 where he trained as a teacher. He was a biology teacher at TAMASCO for a long time before he was elevated to the position of the Headmaster, Ghana Secondary School, Tamale in the early 70s.

He was a keen sports enthusiast who contributed immensely to the development of football in the Northern Region. He was founding member of the Northern Vinted and when the club urged with Real Sportive of Tamale to form Real Tamale United in 1976. He was elected the first Secretary of the Club with Alhaji Radeem Gbadawshie and the first Chairman.

Alhaji Fuseini will be remembered for bringing the young Abedi Pele to Ghana Secondary School, Tamale and moulding him to become the future super-star.

In an interview with Alhaji Razak El-Alawa, a media consultant and a close associate of the late Alhaji Fuseini, he described him as a patriot who had the interest of Ghana and in particular Dagbon at heart.

"I first met Alhaji Fuseini in 1975 when GRAPHIC transferred me to Tamale as Regional Editor of the Daily Graphic in change of the Northern and Upper Regions."

"I came into close contact with him when I started reporting on sports especially football for the Daily Sports."

He took interest in me and together with Alhaji Alhassan Abolo and the present Vice-President, His Excellency Aliu Mahama, Alhaji Gbadamoshie and Ashiru Jimoh made me to take interest in RTU.

"When B.A, as he was formally called learnt I had taught in Sixth form Schools before, he requested me to come and teach part time at his school, GHANASCO, which had then just studied a sixth form programme. That was how I came to teach people like John Mahama, Moses Asaga and Dr. Sulley Gariba who used to be in the first badge of sixth formers at GHANASCO.

According to Alhaji Razak, B.A. was a perfect gentleman who would be sorely missed by the Northern elite.

Only B.A joined the NDC before deciding to return to his mother party the NPP. Alhaji Razak said B.A always explained that he joined the NDC because he did not want the North, especially Dagbon to always drawn in opposition that was why he decided to join the NDC when he was approached since he believed NDC was going to form the first government in the democratic dispensation after 1992.
