We’re devastated by this sudden and unexpected blow – NDC on Sherry Ayittey’s passing

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it is devastated by the sudden demise of one of its stalwarts, Hanny Sherry Ayittey.

In a release, the National Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketia described the late former minister’s death as a blow to the party.

According to the party, “The death of the hardworking and selfless Hon. Dr. Sherry Ayittey has robbed the party, the country, and her family, of yet another elder whose sterling contributions to nation-building span well over a generation in the history of Ghana.”

“We in the NDC are particularly devastated by this sudden and unexpected blow, and at the appropriate time, we shall demonstrate our gratitude to her for her love of nation and party,” portions of the statement added.

Sherry’s family announced her passing in a press release issued on Saturday, July 22, but did not give details as to the cause of death. She was aged 75.

The party says they “console themselves and her family and request for strength and fortitude for her family and friends as preparations are made towards her funeral.”

“Auntie Sherry, rest in peace.”

Also, Minority Leader, Dr Cassiel Ato Forson has eulogised the late former Fisheries Minister.

Dr Forson said the late Ayittey’s “passing leaves a void in our hearts and a tremendous loss to our party and the nation.”


“It is with a heavy heart and profound sorrow that I eulogise the life and legacy of Hon. Dr. Sherry Hanni Ayittey, Vice Chairperson of our party and a former Minister,” he posted on Facebook on Saturday.

According to him, the legacy of the former minister will forever remain etched in the hearts of Ghanaians.
