Samira Bawumia, Second Lady of the Republic of Ghana
Her Excellency Samira Bawumia is the second lady of Ghana and wife to the vice president and running mate of the New Patriotic Party, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
She rose to political prominence during the 2016 general election when she took the initiative to be involved in campaign activities including mounting podiums to sell the policies of her party. Even though she is not a contestant she is noted as a key pillar in election matters in the party.
With her influence on social media seen by numerous young ladies as a role model, she will be expected to be a major advocate for the NPP’s policies and campaign messages.
Akua Donkor – Presidential Aspirant
Akua Donkor is the founder and leader of Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) and the first woman to register a political party and attempt to run for president in Ghana. Even though she has been unsuccessful on two different occasions to have her face on the presidential ballot paper, she has already announced a running mate to assist her contest for the upcoming 2020 election.
As a farmer and one who has not gone through formal education, most people doubt her potentials of being elected President of the Republic of Ghana. But it is without a doubt that her intentions and campaign messages will create a lot of political discussions in the upcoming elections.
