The flagbearer of the Progressive People’s party has paid tribute to the late Progressive People's Party parliamentary aspirant for Klottey Korle constituency Mrs Eva Lokko.

In a facebook post, Papa Kwesi Nduom described the late Eva Lokko as a strong and principled woman who was “always reminding PPP youth to stick to our message, particularly our stand on incorruptible leadership. She was against insulting, disrespectful language and made that known to all. The PPP must be different in a positive way, she always said.”

 

He said he will take a break from active campaigning adding “The scheduled broadcast I was to make to the nation this Saturday cannot happen. I need a few days off. There is more to life than politics.”

The running mate for the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) during the 2012 elections, Eva Lokko, passed away on Thursday, October 6, 2016.

Reports indicate that she passed away in the United States of America where she had been flown for medical treatment.

It is not clear what ailment she had been suffering from until her death.

The former Managing Director of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation had hopes of contesting the Klottey Korle constituency seat on the ticket of the PPP.

She, however, could not file her nomination to contest the election due to ill-health.

Below is the full facebook post from Papa Kwesi Nduom:

A PRINCIPLED WOMAN

I turned on my phone after criss crossing Upper East yesterday, from Tempane to Chiana to see a rush of text messages and phone calls with the sad, sad news that Eva Lokko had passed away. I did not have much to say during the last campaign stop of the day in Bolga. I had lost the enthusiasm and the vim.

Eva and me had promised each other not too long ago to put our health and personal lives before politics. She chose to serve the Ga people by representing them through Osu Klottey Korle in Parliament - that choice will now remain a dream deferred.

Eva took strong, principled positions and stuck to them. She was a strong voice, always reminding PPP youth to stick to our message, particularly our stand on incorruptible leadership. She was against insulting, disrespectful language and made that known to all. The PPP must be different in a positive way, she always said.

I need to take a break. The scheduled broadcast I was to make to the nation this Saturday cannot happen. I need a few days off. There is more to life than politics.
