| PGA is saddened to learn of the recent passing, after a long illness, of its Member, Ms. Theresa Tagoe, 67, former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Ablekuma South Constituency in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. |
Ms. Tagoe served the people of that constituency for three consecutive terms as MP from 1997 to 2008. She served as Deputy Minister of Lands, Forestry and Mines as well as Deputy Minister of Works and Housing and Deputy Greater Accra Regional Minister, all under President John Kufuor.
Affectionately called T.T, the resilient former legislator whose political valor captured nationwide attention, was a career politician whose interest in politics dated back to her days at Aburi Girls' Secondary School, from where she proceeded to the University of Ghana, graduating with a Bachelor's degree in French.
Ms. Tagoe also played a crucial role in a PGA African Task Force neutral exploratory mission to Côte d?Ivoire from February 24-March 1, 2001 whose successful objective at the time was to bring about the restoration of peace and political stability in the country.
PGA extends its heartfelt condolences to her family members and many friends.
