The National Democratic Congress (NDC) chairmanship aspirant, Mr. Dan Abodakpi, has expressed shock at the sudden death of Ms. Dziddzor Tay, a strong activist of the party.
The ex-Trade Minister and onetime Ghana’s High Commissioner to Malaysia and other Asian countries, described Ms. Tay as a “…great heroine of our great NDC” adding that “her contribution to the renaissance of our Party from opposition back to power is without doubt in estimable”.
The ex-Ghanaian envoy said this in a statement sent to The Herald shortly after the passing of Ms. Tay at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KATH)
last week, following a short illness.
According to the NDC chairman aspirant, “when it appeared as if there were no men and women of valor left to fight in defense of the NDC, Dzidzor stood tall in defense of our party and in the process suffered arrests, detentions and inhuman interrogations during Kufour’s so called ‘rule of law’ regime”.
The NDC, Mr. Abodakpi observed, “has lost a great colossus whose faith, belief, trust and commitment to our party is incomparable”.
Dzidzor he said, “Would remain in our hearts as a source of inspiration and true model of emulation”, adding “we pray the Supreme Being will grant her soul eternal rest”.
Until her death, the vociferous Ms. Tay, was a staff in the Office of the President.
Funeral arrangements are not out yet.
