The late Dzifa Aku Attivor was described as a virtuous woman with a heart of gold, who loved and cared for everyone she came in contact with.
Former President John Dramani Mahama described her as a wonderful leader who contributed to development during her service to the country as Minister of Transport.
The EP Church told how instrumental it was in the works of the Lord. They prayed for his eternal rest. Locals also lamented their great loss.
Most affected by the tragic incident were her three children, who described their mother as the kindest, most loving and strong-willed woman they had ever met.
