First Lady Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo

First Lady Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo has celebrated motherhood and the invaluable contribution of mothers in maintaining the family and in making the world a better place for everybody.

She has also wished all mothers and prospective mothers as well as all women playing motherly role in Ghana and across the globe a Happy Mother’s Day.

In a message to mark Mother’s Day yesterday, the First Lady described Mother’s Day as a day for recognising the inestimable support and love mothers have always given, not only to their biological children but to the human race in general.

“Robert Browning was spot on when he posited that, “all love begins and ends with motherhood,” Mrs Akufo-Addo said.

Whilst celebrating the contributions of mothers to the development of society and nations, she used the occasion to call on all stakeholders in the country and beyond to use the day to reflect on the plight of mothers, “particularly in this period of global health crisis occasioned by the outbreak of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic”.

“Even as I recognize that the government of President Akufo-Addo has, and continues to roll out several mitigating measures to ameliorate the socioeconomic impact of the COVID-19 protocols and in addressing the plight of mothers in general, I still believe that there is the need for more pragmatic interventions to further the cause of mothers in this part of our world,” she stated.
