The revival of what you see today as NDC UK started in her house at Stratford in 2005. A few of the youth regularly met in her house to discuss strategies towards that revival. The Youth of the Party in UK hosted many top officials of our great party in her house from 2005 till we won the elections in 2008. Her dedication to the interest of our party is not in doubt. Our party indeed has lost a great ‘soldier’ …Am truly devastated”.
