He remarked, “Lady Kufuor, as I’ve been calling her, has always been a lady. She’s a lady, and to me, she’ll always be a lady. She was an inspiring soul and a great mother, sister, and friend.”
Highlighting Lady Kufuor’s caring nature, Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe reflected on her willingness to offer kind words and wise advice to all who sought her support. “She has always been there for all who come to her with their troubles, with kind words and wise advice. She has been part of the great Nyaho-Tamakloe family,” he added.
