Ghana’s In Capable Hands – First Lady
Ghana’s prospects with President Nana Akufo-Addo in charge are significantly better, the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo has said.
According to her, the President “came to office with a lot of promises and he is working hard to achieve all of them” adding that “he has achieved quite a lot” since taking office.
She said this in an address to officials of the Ghana Embassy in the People’s Republic of China.
She noted that with a determined and focused person like the President steering the affairs of the country, there “is a lot of hope for Ghana and things are already looking good for Ghana.”
The First Lady urged the staff to project the good name of Ghana as well as seek knowledge and skills that can help develop Ghana.
“There is a lot to learn from China, therefore, those of you here should learn and bring the knowledge back home to improve the country”, she said.
The First Lady announced that, the newly constructed mother and baby unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, facilitated by the Rebecca Foundation, will be inaugurated by the close of this year, and her “next stop is Korle Bu.”
Ghana’s Ambassador to China, Edward Boateng, assured the First Lady that he and his staff will “not disappoint the president, but work hard to bring more investment into the country as well as look at the wellbeing of Ghanaians in China.”
The First Lady is in China with a group of women entrepreneurs, some members of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), and academics, to explore investment opportunities for women businesses and investment for the people and government of Ghana.
