Former Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye, and former Second Lady, Mrs Amissah Arthur, have paid their respects and signed the book of condolence for Ga Manye Naa Dedei Omaedru III.

This gesture was made in the presence of chiefs and elders from the Ga Traditional Council.

Professor Oquaye commended the late Queen Mother for her commitment and selflessness in serving her people.

He described her as a distinguished States lady of integrity who dedicated herself to the Ga State.

He expressed his belief that she is now at peace in the arms of her Maker and offered his condolences. In addition to signing the book of condolence, Professor Oquaye made a cash donation and provided other items to support the funeral preparations.

Professor Oquaye also encouraged the Ga Traditional Council to arrange a befitting farewell that would honor the late Queen Mother and elevate the Ga State’s reputation as one of the prominent kingdoms. The Chairman of the funeral committee, Nii Adotey Otintor II, Sempe Mantse, assured Professor Oquaye that he would be kept informed about all the upcoming activities related to the funeral.

The late Naa Omaedru, also known as Naa Dedei Ablah in her private life, passed away at the age of 88 on December 26, 2022. Throughout her 59-year reign, she dedicated herself to public and voluntary service, with a focus on advocating for peace, education, and opportunities for young people, especially girls. The Ga Traditional Council is expected to announce the date for the final funeral rites soon.

Prior to Professor Oquaye’s signing, former Second Lady Mrs Amissah Arthur also expressed her condolences by signing the book of condolence. She assured the elders at the Ga Mantse Palace of her support and offered any assistance necessary to give the late Queen Mother a befitting funeral.

The chiefs and elders expressed their gratitude to Mrs Amissah Arthur for her visit and kind words.

The late Naa Omaedru was not only the Ga Manye but also the paramount queen of the Ga state.
