A former Central Regional Minister has died, according to reports.
She died this morning in Tema, according to reports.
Ama Benyiwa Doe, the former MP for Gomoa West and Central Regional Minister, has died, according to a family source.
She was the Member of Parliament for Gomoa West from 1992 to 2004, and then the National Democratic Congress’s Central Regional Minister.
She commented on the party’s disagreement over Bernard Allottey Jacobs in May of this year.
The party’s former Regional Chairman’s recent rants, according to a former member of the Council of State during John Mahama’s government, would have no impact on the party.
She told Akoma FM, “Allotey has no effect on the NDC; he just adds up the statistics.”
She said that the party’s suspended member only joined to enrich himself.
