National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu, has temporarily suspended his campaign activities following the death of his beloved mother.
The incumbent, who is running for re-election, said in a brief statement that he is temporarily suspending his campaign to allow him and his family to mourn the death of their mother.
He described his late mother as the woman who shaped their ”very beings”
He wrote ”Dear Comrades, it is with a heavy heart that I write to announce the passing of the matriarch and rock of my family, my dear mother, Madam Mary Gyawubea Badu. In one of the darkest moments in my life and that of my family, I am not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts. In view of this, I am temporarily suspending all campaign activities as together with the rest of the family, we reflect and mourn the passing of the woman who shaped our very beings.
On behalf of my family and I, I thank all those who have reached out to us with encouragement and those who have spared thoughts and prayers in these very difficult times.
Let’s keep hope alive.”
