The loss of such a vibrant woman is indeed a very sad event. But knowing Naffie as some of us did, we know that she wouldn’t want us sitting down and grieving but rather celebrating the wonderful life she led. She was a true patriot who shared the belief that we can only build a vibrant nation by working together in furtherance of the tenets of democracy and by jealously guarding the peace and stability of this great nation.

The Secretary General and Leader of the NPP and the entire membership join in with everyone who knew Naffie Sonko in wishing her family peace and comfort as they face this very sad time.
