Former Education Minister, Mr Lee Ocran is dead.

According to family sources the former High Commissioner to South Africa and a stalwart of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) passed on Thursday at his residence in Accra.


Lee Ocran; a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Jomoro, served as Minister for Education of Ghana from 2012 to 2013. Ocran was appointed Minister by President John Atta Mills in February 2012 in a cabinet reshuffle following the resignation of Betty Mould-Iddrisu from the government and the sacking of Martin Amidu.

In 2000 he was Deputy Minister of Environment Science and Technology. Since January 2005 as a candidate from the National Democratic Congress, he was Member of Parliament for the Jomoro Constituency until he lost his seat to the daughter of Kwame Nkrumah, Samia Nkrumah of the Convention People's Party in the December 2008 parliamentary election.

In February 2014, Ocran was sworn in as board chairman of the Volta River Authority.
