Madam Araba Tagoe, a former Western Regional Executive Member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has passed on to glory. She passed on at the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital yesterday, after a short illness.
Magdalene Araba Tagoe, a staunch Catholic and a Member of the Catholic Christian Mothers Association until her death, was a National Executive Committee (NEC) Member of the NDC.
She was the longest serving Deputy Women’s Organiser of the party in the Western Region. The NDC Iron Lady left the position to contest the NEC election in the internal primaries of the NDC last year and won.
Regional Executives of the party, led by the Regional Chairman, Nana Toku, together with Joseph Nelson, Regional Secretary, and Charles Fordjour, Regional Organiser, travelled to Cape Coast yesterday to meet with the family.
Details of her funeral rites including a traditional one week observation are yet to be made public.
Our source understands Madam Araba Tagoe was preparing to bury her mother who had earlier passed on.
