Mother’s Day: Don’t shirk parenting role due to exigencies – Lordina

The First Lady of Ghana, Lordina Dramani Mahama, has encouraged Ghanaian mothers not to allow the exigencies of today’s busy world and challenging demands of work to discourage and push them to abandon their parenting role.

She said mothers should always make it a priority to “be there for their children.”

Congratulating Ghanaian mothers on the occasion of this year’s Mother’s Day, which falls on Sunday, May 10, Mrs Mahama urged women to continue to be the proud “African mother that is prepared to sacrifice their personal comfort for the benefit of their children.”

Mothers, she noted, have special places in the hearts of their children.

“This treasured mothers love has been time tested, and reflects the undying desire for a mother to carry all the burdens of her children, and wiping their tears with her smiles,” the president of the Lordina Foundation said in a statement.
