The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is mourning the loss of Mrs. Theresa Kufuor, former First Lady of the Republic of Ghana. Mrs. Kufuor, who passed away on October 1, 2023, was the beloved wife of former President John Agyekum Kufuor.
In a statement released by the party’s General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, the NPP expressed deep condolences to former President John Kufuor and his family.
“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 has 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 would 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.
