Minister for Special Development Initiatives, Madam Mavis Hawa Koomson, has prophesied that Ghana will have a female president in 2030.
“Let’s give ourselves up to 2030 and I am convinced that a woman will become president of Ghana. When Akufo-Addo is done with his mandate and another male continues, trust me, the next one will be a female,” she said.
Speaking on Adom TV on Friday, the Minister said women’s multitask approach in dealing with issues, makes a woman a better manager of the affairs of a country.
Although 50% of Ghana’s population are women, data available indicate that Ghanaian politics and the public sector are dominated by men.
