Hammond, Minister for National Security, Albert Kan Dapaah, Deputy Minister for Finance, John A. Kumah among others were in attendance.

Earlier the party in a statement released by the General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, the NPP expressed deep condolences to former President John Kufuor and his family.

The party noted that “Mrs. Kufuor was a devoted public servant who dedicated her life to supporting her husband and serving humanity. She championed the cause of improved healthcare in the country and established the Mother and Child Community Development Foundation (MCCDF) that supported the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of diseases, including HIV/AIDS”.

“She also promoted female empowerment initiatives and inspired several young and adult females in various facets of life.”

To honour her memory, the NPP has directed all Party flags across the country to fly at half-mast for seven days.
The party said that the country had lost a valuable asset, and her legacy would live on.

“May her gentle soul continue to rest in perfect peace until we meet again on the resurrection morning. Damirifa Due!” the statement read.

Ghana has lost a passionate and committed woman, and her absence would be deeply felt.

Her contribution to the country’s healthcare system and female empowerment initiatives will not be forgotten soon. The NPP has urged all Ghanaians to pray for the Kufuor family and support them in this period of grief.

The NPP’s message affirms the country’s commitment to continue building on the lasting legacies that Mrs Kufuor had created. Ghana will surely miss her.
