The New Patriotic Party (NPP) deeply mourns the passing of Her Excellency Mrs. Theresa Kufuor, the beloved wife of former President John Agyekum Kufuor and former First Lady of the Republic which sad event occurred on October 1, 2023.
Mrs. Theresa Kufuor, who served as Ghana’s First Lady from January 7, 2001, to January 6, 2009, dedicated her life to supporting her husband throughout his political career and to the service of humanity.
Inspired by her profession as a nurse, Mrs. Kufour championed the cause of improved healthcare in our country. Notably, she established the Mother and Child Community Development Foundation (MCCDF) which supports the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of diseases, including HIV/ AIDS.
Mrs. Kufuor was also a beacon for female advancement, fostering initiatives to inspire and empower both young and adult females in various facets of life.
The members of the ruling New Patriotic Party, together with all Ghanaians whose lives were positively touched by her, extend our deepest condolences to former President John Agyekum Kufuor, their children, and the entire family. We stand united with you in this time of sorrow, praying that the Almighty God grants all of us the fortitude to bear this great loss.
In tribute to the memory of the late Mrs. Kufuor, the NPP directs that all Party flags across the country be flown at half-mast for the next seven days. May her gentle soul continue to rest in perfect peace until we meet again on the resurrection morning.
