President Akufo-Addo has eulogised the late Mrs. Theresa Kufour, wife of former President John Agyekum Kufour.
The President says he is saddened by the death of the former first lady.
Akufo-Addo in a brief statement said the death of Theresa Kufour reminds him keenly of human mortality, that is that Almighty God will come for each and every one of us at the appropriate time.
He wrote “She was an invaluable and constant source of advice, encouragement and prayers for him. Member of a well-known family from Odumase, in the Bono Region, sister of the renowned statesman, the late J.H Mensah, and aunt of President Kufuor’s Secretary, the brilliant diplomat, Ambassador D.K Osei, she was politically astute, and was a major contributor to her husband’s political success. She was a composed and articulate First Lady, polyglot, fluent in several languages including Ewe, who brought great dignity to the position”.
“My wife, Rebecca, the First Lady, and I will miss her a lot. We extend our deepest condolences to President Kufuor, their children, grandchildren, and members of their family on their irreplaceable loss. We wish her a peaceful place of abode in the Bosom of the Almighty, as she deserves, until the Last Day of the Resurrection when we shall all meet again. Amen!!”
