Today, Monday, 12 March 2018 marks the 67th birthday of Ghana’s First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

Her husband president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo took to Facebook to wish his wife well.

“Happy birthday to my beloved Rebecca,” Nana Akufo-Addo posted.

Second Lady Samira Bawumia also in a birthday message, described Mrs Akufo-Addo as a beautiful, compassionate woman and mother. “Aunty Becky we love you and wish you the very best of this day,” she added.
