Use made in Ghana cosmetic products - First Lady

The First Lady also advocated the use of locally produced products and cosmetics, to reduce the importation of such products and help stabilise the economy.

First Lady Mrs. Lordina Dramani Mahama on Tuesday presided over the mass graduation of hairdressers and beauticians in Accra.

Organised by the Ghana Hairdressers and Beauticians Association (GHABA), a total of two hundred and thirty (230) apprentices were graduated.

Mrs. Mahama encouraged the graduating apprentices to commit themselves to their chosen vocation, be innovative and imaginative as they step out to offer their services.

The use of Made in Ghana products, she noted, will increase patronage, lead to an expansion of the manufacturing companies and create more jobs for the Ghanaian youth.


Speaking on the importance of skills training and the benefits to trainees, Mrs. Mahama said government is providing through the Council for Technical and Vocational Education Training (COTVET) a total of GH¢15 million in grants for skills training.

The First Lady, who is the National President of the Lordina Foundation, presented to the Association 30 boxes of standing hair dryers, 10 pieces of hand dryers, 20 pieces of tonging equipment, 30 work trollers, 10 foot massagers, and 20 sterilization boxes.

Some of the equipment were presented to deserving graduates.
