Tribute to Theresa Tagoe, MP

The Late Theresa Tagoe, MP, was a great woman and politician. She was a mother to all within the Party and Ghana. At times when Party members including men were unwilling to stand up to the social injustice that plagued our country in the last two decades, she stood up and defended the principles and freedoms we enjoy today as Ghanaians. She can be likened to Yaa Asantewaa in more than one way. I strongly believe constituents in Ablekuma South will forever remember Mama Theresa for her contribution to gender equality and socio-economic development across the constituency.

Mama Theresa was an extrovert. In 2005 when she appeared before the Appointment Committee of Parliament, she said “Yes I like talking. Sometimes I get out and sit on my steps and just talk to people passing. Through talking I become dynamic”.

Mama Theresa encouraged family planning. According to her, family planning was good for families since smaller healthier families saved for their children’s education and had a better chance of escaping from poverty. She said family planning could increase a woman’s life opportunities, education and work by preventing early and unwanted pregnancies.

This is the woman Ghana has lost. To pay your final respect, please see below for details:

  1. It was a joy working under Auntie Theresa. She was a mother to all. Anyone could walk into her office on any issue. She always had encouraging words to share. It hurts so much that you are no more with us here. Mum, I miss you so much. Rest in perfect peace

    May her soul rest in eternal peace. I never had the chance to meet Madam Tagoe; but, judging from the tribute paid her, I can conclude, we have lost a great asset. May her death not be in vain, and may her dedication to seeing the underpriviledged in society uplifted, be our guiding principle, even as we aim to capture power in 2012.
