Commending the former first lady for her role in the development of women in the country, the renowned Catholic Priest said “the wife (Nana Konadu) is also a great lady who loves people. She came to Kongo and I organized a party for her. The women that came to eat, the meat she was supposed to eat she will collect and give it to the other ladies. She was not a selfish lady”
