NDC's Ama Benyiwa Doe Passes On
One time Central Regional Minister under the Atta Mills government, Ama Benyiwa Doe, has passed. She died in the early hours of Sunday, September 19, 2021 at Tema. Madam Benyiwa Doe, otherwise known as Chavez for her strong political views and courage, is said to have died at age 73 after a protracted ailment according to
her aide. Jerry Kissi Dei Yeboah, the special aide to Ama Benyiwa Doe and constituency communication officer for Gomoa West said that, yes, Auntie Ama has passed. She has not been well for sometime. She will be on and off and recently she took ill seriously and we all did our best to give her the best health care. Yesterday [Friday],
she had to go and rest in her room but after an hour she was uncomfortable so we also had to rush her to the hospital and passed. She was 73. Ama Benyiwa Doe was first elected into Parliament during the December the 1992 general elections on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress NDC as MP for the Gomoa West
Constituency in the Central Region. Although she hasn’t been active also in the politics for quite some time, she continued to work behind the scenes for the National Democratic Congress (NDC). A year ago, she granted an interview where she accused the NPP of plotting the downfall of the late President Atta Mills from the time he was sworn in until his demise. What interests me
and intrigues me is when the NPP keeps asking who killed Mills? They were the people saying Atta Mills was sick, now when his maker called him peacefully, they turned into family members asking how he died. The opponents, who wanted to bring him down, were saying that Mr Atta Mills was sick and finally, when his maker called him, they said why is he dead and that somebody might have killed him. Can you imagine? She queried.
