The wife of Hopeson Adorye, a top New Patriotic Party (NPP) official, has died.
Reports say she died in Germany Friday morning. She was reportedly suffering from cancer.
A heartbroken Adorye took to Facebook to lament her death.
"Why me at this time? R.I.P, my dearest," he wrote.
The development has provoked shock among some NPP supporters, who have questioned why such a tragic fate should befall Adorye at a time that his party has just won power.
Many of them have taken to social media to commiserate with their fellow NPP die-hard.
The death will come as as huge blow to Adorye who, some reports say, got married to his wife just last year.
