For Immediate Release
GIRL POWER MOVEMENT (GPM) CONGRATULATES MRS DR.
NANA LORDINA MAHAMA FOR EXEMPLARY LEADERSHIP.
The Girl Power Movement (GPM), a social Non-Governmental Organization of female University students, with the primary aim of empowering young girls across the country,
congratulates the first lady of the Republic of Ghana, Mrs. Dr. Nana Lordina Mahama for her exemplary leadership, both in Ghana and across the continent of Africa.
We have observed that, typical of a good and caring mother, Mrs. Dr Nana Lordina Mahama represents an emblem of Hope to many underprivileged children in Ghana and Africa. Through the Lordina foundation, she has supported thousands of
Children and she continues to offer assistance to many
deprived people in our society. Her humanitarian activities as a first lady, are very impressive and worthy of commendation.
Since her election as the president of the Organization of African First Ladies Against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) , Mrs Dr Nana Lordina Mahama has been successful in coordinating various efforts to reduce the menace of HIV/AIDS, especially the transmission from mother to child. Recent statistics available indicate that, OAFLA under her leadership has made giant and remarkable progress. Once again, her leadership is yielding results on the continent.
As a group with the ultimate aim of ensuring that, we unearth the potentials in young ladies and empower them to take up leadership roles, we take inspiration from the First Lady, who has been outstanding in a position that many considered as simply ceremonial. Obviously, Mrs Dr. Nana Lordina Mahama by her words and deeds has become a role model to many of us.
Also, we wish to applaud her for launching the campaign
against child marriage. In our interactions with young girls across the country, one of the most disturbing and fearful practices is the ‘forced child marriage’. By the launch of the campaign against this obnoxious practice, we are extremely elated that, the first lady is leading efforts to eradicate one of the major challenges that young girls encounter in Ghana. It is victory for us as a movement and indeed, victory for all Ghanaians.
In conclusion, we wish to assure Mrs. Dr. Nana Lordina Mahama of our unflinching support in all her projects. We also urge her to remain resolute as always, even as some terrible political elements maliciously attempt to destroy her hard earned and untainted reputation. It is apparent that, Mrs. Dr Nana Lordina Mahama’s achievement as a First Lady is a threat to the political ambitions of these detractors. We urge all Ghanaians to rally behind the first lady as she begins another journey to end child marriages.
