“I spent my morning in Amanfrom near Kasoa commiserating with the mother and family of the 10-year-old who was gruesomely murdered allegedly by two teenagers.
This despicable episode demands national soul searching and an honest inquiry into the direction of our country.
Even as a mother and grandmother, I do not pretend to fully comprehend what my fellow mother is going through at this moment save to offer prayers and words of sincere sympathy.
On behalf of Former President John Dramani Mahama and the NDC, we made a token donation of GHS10,000.00 to the family.
May Allah grant solace and strength to the bereaved family particularly in this holy month of Ramadan.”
