I will be Ghana’s first female president – Nana Konadu
Presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Party (NDP), Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings, has said she is poised to make history as first female president of the Republic of Ghana.
The former first lady who has made history as the first female presidential candidate in Ghana said she believes this historic feat will encourage other women to aim higher.
Speaking in an interview, Nana Konadu said: “taking part in this election is important for me because it opens the door for women, and for all to see women as activist part of the development of the country.”
Nana Konadu missed the opportunity to contest in the 2012 election. This almost repeated itself in 2016. She was however cleared to contest after the Supreme Court ruled that the nomination date be extended.
She expressed optimism that this election will give the party “an opportunity to showcase what we have as NDP.” She promised “a robust economy” if effort into power after the December 7 polls.
Asked about her campaign strategy, she said: “we are doing things on the ground but have no publicity.”
