I dream of a day Ghana will have a female president – Rebecca Akufo-Addo


Rebecca Akufo-Addo, Ghana’s First Lady, has articulated her vision for a future where Ghana proudly elects its first female president. During a compelling address at the 5th session of the 15th

Congregation at the University of Professional Studies in Accra, she expressed her belief that such a historic milestone would serve as a powerful inspiration for girls across the nation.

Encouraging young females, the First Lady urged them to set ambitious career goals and strive for personal growth.

In her address, she underscored the pivotal roles women play in both the judiciary and executive branches, emphasizing her dream of witnessing the day when Ghana effortlessly refers to its leader as “Madam President” as easily as “Mr. President.”

The occasion was marked by a special distinction for the First Lady, as the University of Professional Studies conferred upon her an honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters (HonD.HL). The ceremony also paid tribute to trailblazing women who have made significant contributions to Ghana’s history.

Notably, former Speaker of Parliament, Justice Adeline Bamford-Addo, the first female to hold the position, and former Chief Justice of the Republic, Justice Georgina Theodora Wood, were honored for their remarkable contributions to the development and progress of Ghana.

This collective recognition underscores the nation’s commitment to empowering and celebrating the achievements of its female leaders.
