Alan John Kwadwo Kyeremanten I received the news of the passing into eternity of Her Excellency Hajia Ramatu Aliu Mahama, wife of the late former Vice President H.E Aliu Mahama.
This morning, together with a few patriots, l visited her home to offer our condolence to her family as she joins her late husband and my good friend, Alhaji Aliu Mahama, to rest in the peace of Allah.
She was a likeable woman and a mother to all. During her days as Second Lady of the Republic, her gentle and graceful nature was evident in all she did as she opened her doors to all in society.
Her calming influence will be sorely missed in our body politic. She and her husband have been a good inspiration to many.
May her soul Rest in eternal Peace.
