Election 2016 is fast gathering momentum. The frontrunners President John Mahama and Nana Akufo-Addo are touring every city, town and village to secure the mandate of Ghanaians. Their spouses are not only running affairs at home but also deeply involved in the campaign.
But of much importance today is which of the beauties is doing more to help her husband move in to the Flagstaff House in January 2017.
Mrs Mahama is one of the most active first ladies in Ghana’s history. She has made the presidency a shared responsibility based on her involvement in the development of the nation.
On the other hand, Mrs Akufo-Addo still remains supportive and hopeful of her experienced husband’s presidential bid even after two failed attempts.
Through the Lordina Foundation, the First Lady is meeting the demands and requests of the campaign period. She has been making donations to some organisations and that would definitely boost her husband’s quest to remain in office.
The wife of the opposition leader is also presenting items to some institutions. Her mobilisation skills and strategies are very impressive in view of the limited resources at her disposal.
Mrs Mahama is touting the achievements of her husband to voters across the country. Her campaign in the Brong Ahafo Region has been very significant.
Likewise, Mrs Akufo-Addo is telling Ghanaians about the plans of her husband and has also been campaigning massively at the markets oftentimes.
Lordina scored full marks when she managed to convince former President Rawlings from giving his trademark ‘boom speeches’ at the launch of the governing party’s campaign in Cape Coast.
Rebecca also took the campaign beyond the borders of the country when she met with some Ghanaian entrepreneurs in the United Kingdom two months ago.
Both women are doing a lot but who is going the extra mile?
