“Lordina and I have learnt with great grief the passing of Madam Sherry Ayittey who served as my Minister for Health and later as Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture Development.
‘Aunty’ Sherry was an active stalwart of our great party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and served as Vice Chair of the party. She was also one of the key leaders of the 31st December Women’s Movement.
We commiserate with her bereaved family while we mourn our collective loss.
Rest In Perfect Peace, Aunty Sherry.”These were contained in a statement issued by the former President of the Republic,John Dramani Mahama on his Facebook page.
