Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
At a time when many are facing difficulties due to the global pandemic, the role of mothers in the economic, emotional, and psychological well-being of families could never be overstated.
To celebrate their birth mothers and mothers for their impactful contribution to their lives, some eminent political personalities have taken to social media to share heartwarming messages along with photos to mark the special day.
YEN.com.gh has selected some of the best posts below.
Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia shared pictures of his mother, Mariama Bawumia, his wife and Second Lady, Samira Bawumia, with thoughtful words to celebrate them.
''Happy Mother's Day to my amazing mum, Hajia Mariama Bawumia; my lovely wife, Hajia Samira Bawumia and all mothers in Ghana.
I celebrate you on this day and appreciate your continuous support, unconditional love, care and inspiration that propel my growth in life. May God bless all mothers ❤️,'' he posted on Facebook.
First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo writes: ''I am who I am because of mama” is a common sentiment among Ghanaian children.
And they are right: the stories that follow are stories of bold sacrifices and pain; of mysterious love and investments.
I believe celebrating mothers would never go out of date. After all, there is a constant need for their bountiful supply of prayers, even in one’s old age.
A mother’s love, A mother’s prayer, A Mother’s faith, A mother’s Counsel, a mother’s touch.
As I reflect on these, one message is clear: We love them, because they first, loved us.
Angels in the shape of mothers - May we continue to thank them, may we continue to love and adore them, may we be like them. Happy Mothers’ Day!❤️

Let me also appreciate the female frontline workers who have fearlessly been at the forefront of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
I must also celebrate all single mothers, single fathers and guardians performing the role of mothers. Continue your good works and know that your hard work will never go unrewarded.
God bless you all. Happy Mothers Day! Lordina Dramani Mahama. Former First Lady & President, Lordina Foundation,'' she posted.
