There is usually little argument when it comes to the subject of the popularity of families of Heads of State of Ghana particularly when the names of the Rawlings’ and the Nkrumahs are mentioned.

Being the country’s first president, the names, faces and lifestyles of the children of Kwame Nkrumah were quite public, and the same could be said of the father of Ghana’s democracy, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings; who also is the country's longest-ever serving president.

The next general elections in Ghana are scheduled for December 7, 2024, and while no specific names have been made public to be vying for the presidency, there have been a few names that have been dominating media spaces as possible candidates.

In this GhanaWeb article, we look at who and who could occupy the place of the next possible first families of Ghana in the year 2025.

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia:

Dr. Bawumia is the current Vice President of Ghana.

He has been highly tipped to take over from his boss, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, when he hands over the presidency in January 2025.

He is married to Samira Bawumia and they have children.

Here are some photos of them:
