Former President John Dramani Mahama led a delegation of the NDC including Former President Jerry John Rawlings to mourn Nana Nyamaa II of Tuobodom.
In a post he made on facebook, Former President John Mahama, who is also the Presidential Candidate of the NDC said Nana Nyamaa II, who reigned for almost 47 years, was not only a queen mother but a sister, an elder sister and mother with whom he discussed many issues, especially relating to tradition.
“I led a delegation of National Democratic Congress (NDC) officials to mourn with the Sunyanimanhene, the people of Sunyani, the mother and children of the late Sunyani Omanhemaa, Nana Yaa Nyamaa II, on Friday.
Nana Nyamaa II, who reigned for almost 47 years, was a friend to many, a development- focused traditional leader who championed the education of her people and was committed to keeping Sunyaniman clean.
My wife, Lordina, a personal friend of the late Omanhemaa in her tribute said “Nanahemaa was not only a queen mother. To me, she was a sister, an elder sister and mother with whom I discussed many issues, especially relating to tradition”.
The late Nana Omanhemaa’s strength as a person was expressed through the remarkable quality of her relationship with other people, her ability to make all who she met count; no matter how brief the meeting. She always considered others as special.
When it came to leadership, Nanahemaa was courageous, something she endured to the end.
