The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is in great sadness following Madam Ama Bame Busia’s death on Tuesday, December 12, 2023.

Ms. Busia, a founding member of the NPP’s political tradition and the sister of former Prime Minister Kofi Abrefa Busia, played a crucial role in the party’s history.

Madam Busia was the NPP’s National First Vice Chairperson and a member of the National Council of Elders until her death. Her excellent career extended beyond the party, as she was a member of the Council of State.

“The late Madam Ama Busia was an embodiment of humility, hard work, and selfless service to the NPP and the nation at large,” NPP National Chairman Stephen Ayesu Ntim said in a statement.

“The Party extends its heartfelt condolences to the Busia family and commiserates with the rest of the nation for the painful loss of this illustrious citizen of our land.”

To show respect and appreciation for Ms. Busia’s enormous efforts, the NPP has ordered that all party flags be flown at half-mast for the next seven days.

Madam Busia’s influence extends beyond politics. She was well-known for her uncompromising dedication to democracy, justice, and the welfare of her fellow citizens. Her death will be felt across the country.

“May the soul of our dearly departed find comfort in God’s bosom, and may the family she left behind and, indeed, all of us in the Party and beyond find fortitude to bear this great loss,” Mr. Ntim went on to say.
