Last night, I received the shocking news of the passing of Her Excellency, Madam Theresa Kufuor, former First Lady of the Republic of Ghana.
Her death is a sad moment for the country due to the initiatives she championed as First Lady particularly regarding women and children .
She left an indelible mark in the minds of Ghanaians when she assisted her husband, His Excellency, President John Agyekum Kufuor, to govern the country from January 2001 to January 2009.
Madam Theresa Kufour was a storehouse of knowledge and constantly provided her husband wise counselling that helped to coronate him as arguably the best President of Ghana
As a sign of respect and in honour of the memory of the late Madam Theresa Kufuor.
I have with immediate effect, suspended all my campaign activities nationwide to mourn a great soul which has departed from us.
My heartfelt condolences go to President Kufour and his entire family. Rest in Peace, Madam Theresa Kufuor.
