The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, and the leadership of the NDC have called on former President Jerry John Rawlings to commiserate with him following the passing of his mother, Madam Victoria Agbotui.
President Mahama, in a brief remark on Friday, September 25, described the loss of Madam Agbotui as a shared one because she was always on hand to give wise counsel whenever she interacted with him and other party members.
He consoled former President Rawlings and encouraged him to take heart as Mama had lived a full life and had seen it all.
The NDC flagbearer said, “Mama was the kind of person one would assume would live forever.”
He also assured the NDC Founder that the NDC will participate fully in the funeral activities of the late Madam Agbotui.
Former President Mahama was accompanied by the Vice Chairman of the NDC Council of Elders, Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu; National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo; General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia and other national executives of the party.
Madam Victoria Agbotui died in the early hours of Thursday, September 24, aged 101.
