”If you look at how President Mills allowed her to function in his government and governing space, and how she was made a full-blown Minister; she was MP for three terms on the ticket of the NDC and under President Mahama, she became a Member of the Council of state from the Central Region.
”She moved from with all due respect as a union rep from Legon Campus through to becoming Minister, MP and ended up at the highest advisory body of the Republic of Ghana, I think her soul should be fulfilled. She did her best. Yes the NDC gave her enough wings to fly to higher heights”.
