On March 8, 2024, as the world commemorated International Women's Day, former First Lady Lordina Mahama took a moment to honor the remarkable achievements and unwavering resilience of Ghanaian women. In a poignant statement, she reflected on their invaluable contributions to the socio-economic fabric of the nation, highlighting their indomitable spirit in surmounting myriad obstacles on their journey to progress. With eloquence and conviction, Mrs. Mahama underscored the urgent need to invest in women, recognizing it not only as a moral imperative but also as a strategic economic decision that benefits society at large. She eloquently articulated how empowering women to reach their full potential catalyzes positive societal transformation, fostering inclusive growth and sustainable development for generations to come.


Moreover, Mrs. Mahama extended heartfelt congratulations to her husband, John Mahama, and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for their groundbreaking decision to nominate Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as their running mate for the upcoming general elections. This historic nomination marked a significant milestone in Ghana's political landscape, exemplifying a steadfast commitment to gender equality and women's empowerment. As she passionately advocated for the inclusion and advancement of women in leadership roles, Mrs. Mahama reaffirmed her unwavering support for Professor Opoku-Agyemang and all women aspiring to break through barriers and shatter glass ceilings in various spheres of society.


Furthermore, Mrs. Mahama reiterated her steadfast commitment to championing the cause of vulnerable populations through the noble endeavors of the Lordina Foundation. With a deep sense of compassion and dedication, she pledged to continue providing essential support to needy children, orphans, women, and healthcare facilities across the nation. Notably, Mrs. Mahama highlighted the transformative impact of the Foundation's flagship initiative—the construction of the Lordina Foundation Maternity and Children's Ward at Bole District Hospital. This pioneering project not only symbolized a beacon of hope for expectant mothers and their newborns but also played a pivotal role in achieving the remarkable milestone of zero maternal mortality in 2023—a testament to the power of collective action and compassionate leadership.


As the world observed International Women's Day, Mrs. Mahama eloquently articulated the significance of this global celebration in advancing the cause of women's rights and gender equality. She emphasized the importance of amplifying the voices of women, advocating for reproductive rights, combating gender-based violence, and dismantling systemic barriers that impede women's progress. With unwavering resolve and unwavering optimism, Mrs. Mahama called upon all stakeholders to join hands in the collective endeavor to 'invest in women to accelerate progress.' This resonant theme encapsulated the essence of International Women's Day 2024—a rallying cry for solidarity, empowerment, and meaningful change in the pursuit of a more equitable and just world for all.
