A young Ghanaian veterinarian Doctor living and practicing in UK has passed away few months after settling in the United Kingdom.
Suddenly and unexpectedly, Dr. AMORO AYAMGA NELSON passed away in early January this year. The sad event occurred at the Hull Royal infirmary on Saturday evening, after complaining of chest pain. He was rushed to the hospital when he suddenly collapsed after dinner, and was pronounced death at the hospital late at night when the Hull Royal infirmary team tried their best.
Nelson was born in Natugnia-Navrongo in the North of Ghana. First born of Apanzoya (father) and Azure (mother) he attended St Gabriel primary School and Tamale SHS High School while helping his parents to raise his 6 brothers and 2 sisters, who always looked up to Nelson as a second fatherly figure, until he went to study at School of Veterinary Medicine – Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (SVM-KNUST) where he obtained his Veterinary degree. He was one of the pioneer aluminum, who graduated in September, 2014.
Dr. Amoro before accepting to work with the UK government agency, Food and Safety Agency (FSA.UK.GOV) as a Public Health Officer, was with the Ghana Veterinary Service Department (VSD) of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA), where he headed the Kintampo Municipal Veterinary Hospital as the Municipal Veterinary Officer (MVO) or Director for close to five years in the veterinary profession. He brought great changes to his municipality and offer good services to farmers and pet owners.
Dr. Amoro moved to the UK and joined Eville & Jones in November 2021. He was described by his CEO, Charles Hartwell, as “an incredibly likable and talented individual with a fabulous work ethic and a great personality.”
One of Nelson’s brothers remembers him as, “a gentle, loving, generous and caring brother… He was the type of person who tried his best all the time to make sure the family needs were met and that brought him joy. He always gave good advice and encouraged his younger brothers to be better. He was a great fan of Chelsea football club and he loved playing Ludo”
Suffice to say, he will be fondly remembered by his family, friends and colleagues. The cause of death will be reveal later as plans are underway to have a Memorial Service for him in England. The said program will be stream live on our media channels for friends and love ones to participate.
May he rest in peace!!
