However, she proceeded to hint at one of her policies.

Akua Donkor expressed her dissatisfaction with the New Patriotic Party’s plan to privatise the development and management of the Saglemi Housing Project.

According to her, privatising the project would make it unaffordable and out of reach for the average Ghanaian.

She said rather than privatising it, her future government would offer the units to civil servants to use in perpetuity.

She noted that if she became president, all that civil servants would have to do is to pack their belongings and move into any unit of their choice.

She revealed that her government would allow these civil servants to live in those units free of charge and that the units would not be taken from them when they retired.

Akua Donkor in search of a new husband

Akua Donkor earlier disclosed that she is desperately in need of a husband to replace her late husband.

She said it has been tough staying without a man for many months, but she foresees an even more challenging period when active political campaigning starts in 2024.

"I haven’t re-married since my husband died. It’s been two years, and my ring is no longer on my finger. I need to get married again because I need a partner as a female politician," she told Kofi TV in an interview that was aired on March 1, 2023.

Speaking in Twi, she said she needs a man to be Ghana's maiden First Gentleman, suggesting that she will win the national presidential polls on the ticket of the party she founded, the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP).
