The Central Region branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been mourning late party stalwart, Madam Ama Benyiwa Doe, who passed this weekend.
Kwesi Dawood, the NDC’s Central regional Communications Officer has been paying tribute to the woman who was a founding member of the current largest opposition party in Ghana.
“Truly, she has paid her dues to God, Ghana, the Great NDC, Central Region and Gomoa West and we pray to the Almighty to grant her a Peaceful Rest”, Mr Dawood noted.
“Auntie Ama was a real Titan and one of our foremost female voices on National issues”, he is quoted as saying.
Mr. Dawood described her as a fantastic Cadre and a true and committed activist of the NDC.
Madam Benyiwa Doe reportedly died at a Tema Hospital after battling ill health for some time now. She was 71.
She was the former Member of Parliament on the NDC’s ticket for Gomoa West from 1992 until 2004.
Ama Benyawa-Doe was also a one-time national women’s organiser of the NDC. In January 2009, she was appointed by President Atta Mills as the Central Regional Minister.
She was a former member of the Pan-African Parliament.
