Former President Kufour Has Recovered – Aide

The aide to former President John Agyekum Kufuor,  Dr Kwabena Osei-Adubofour, has said that the statesman was hit by the death of his wife, Theresa Aba Kufuor, but has recovered from the shock. 

The former president is said to be keeping soul and body together following the death of his wife.

He also explained that the former first lady passed on in the late afternoon of Sunday, October 1.

“The death happened yesterday late in the afternoon, and the old man [Kufuor] did not take it lightly at all because it was a shock to him. But this morning, I have seen that he has recovered from the shock,” he said.

Mr. Osei-Adubofour noted that the former president has accepted that death is inevitable and part of humanity.

“But you know, he is old enough to understand death, and normally when people come to inform us about the bereavement of other people, he keeps on saying death is a journey everyone will embark on, so he has accepted it,” the aide explained.

On the late former First Lady’s health, Dr. Osei-Adubofour said, “She had four nurses taking care of her 24/7. She would have been 88 on October 25, 2023,” he revealed.

He has also appealed to all Ghanaians to keep the former president in their prayers for him to be able to wither the storm.

Meanwhile, condolences are pouring in from all over the world.

President Nana Akufo-Addo has also expressed his heartfelt condolences to former President John Agyekum Kufuor following the demise of his wife, Theresa Kufuor.

According to the President, Mama Theresa, as she was affectionately called, “was an invaluable and a constant source of advice” for her husband.

President Akufo-Addo acknowledged her political acumen, recognizing her as a significant contributor to her husband’s political success.
