In a statement, she commended the significant contributions of Ghanaian women to the country's development and emphasized their commendable efforts of breaking barriers and trailblazing, even in the face of challenging circumstances.

Mrs. Mahama expressed her admiration for the resilience and achievements of Ghanaian women and urged everyone to continue to invest in women.

Mrs. Mahama also congratulated her husband, John Mahama, and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for selecting a woman, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, as their running mate ahead of the 2024 general elections.
