The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has lost one of the founders of its political tradition – the Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition. Madam Dame Ama Busia, a sister of former Prime Minister Dr K.A. Busia died yesterday, December 12, 2023.
The party has directed all of its flags to fly at half-mast in honour of her. The party described her as a distinguished stateswoman who was an embodiment of humility, hard work and selfless service to the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“The party extends its heartfelt condolences to the Busia family and also commiserates with the rest of the nation for the painful loss of this illustrious citizen of our land.
In honour of her memory, the NPP directs that all party flags in its offices across the country be flown at half-mast for the next seven days,” a statement signed by National Chairman of the NPP Stephen Ntim said.
Madam Dame Ama Busia, who had served in various high-profile positions of the party, was a member of the National Council of Elders of the NPP until her passing.
