Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, the incumbent National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has temporarily halted all campaign activities.

Following his mother’s passing on Monday, October 31 at the Koforidua Regional Hospital, this has happened. She was 84.

Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo, who is being challenged by General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia for the National Chairmanship position, announced the death on his official Facebook page and referred to his mother as the “matriarch and rock” of his family.


Dear Comrades, it is with a heavy heart that I write to announce the passing of the matriarch and rock of my family, my dear mother, Madam Mary Gyawubea Badu. In one of the darkest moments in my life and that of my family, I am not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts. In view of this, I am temporarily suspending all campaign activities as together with the rest of the family, we reflect and mourn the passing of the woman who shaped our very beings.
On behalf of my family and I, I thank all those who have reached out to us with encouragement and those who have spared thoughts and prayers in these very difficult times.
Let’s keep hope alive, ” he wrote.
Madam Mary Gyawubea Badu, Late mother of Hon. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo
