Cast your vote: Who will be Ghana's next female president?

Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, Former First Lady of GhanaNana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, Former First Lady of Ghana

The political landscape in Ghana is gradually gaining appraisal across the world as the nation is being termed the beacon of Africa’s democracy.

In the midst of the praises, one thing remains certain – the fact that the nation has not had the chance of having a female as president.

Check this list of the most suitable Ghanaian women most likely of becoming future presidents of Ghana.

Hanna Tetteh

Ghana’s foreign affairs minister, Hanna Tetteh has always being eyed as a possible candidate to be Ghana’s first female president. So far, she remains one of the highly experienced politicians in Ghana with no scandals levelled against her – a clear indication that she may be lacing her boots for the seat in the flagstaff house.

Dr. Joyce Aryee

Been the first African woman to have held the role of chief executive officer of the Ghana Chamber of Mines and over 40 years pf active public service, Dr. Joyce Aryee remains a force to reckon with when it comes to skilled and disciplined Ghanaian women best positioned to lead the nation as president.

Esther Cobbah

You may not have heard about her but Stella Cobbah is best respected as that illustrious Ghanaian woman who gets everything working successfully under her leadership. Talk of Stratcomm Africa – a viable communication establishment which continues to portray Ghana in good light even more than the all knowing ministry of tourism. If given the chance, she could be able to translate her capacity to the development of Ghana as female president.

Konadu Agyemang Rawlings

Oh yes! Even before allegations made rounds over her possibility of running for president, former first lady Agyemang Rawlings has already started with her journey to the Flagstaff House through her break-away party which has seen her declared as the presidential candidate for the party ahead of the 2016 general elections. There remain fond memories about Konadu Rawlings during her years as first lady under former president Jerry Rawlings. She may have a special presidential experience to lead Ghana.

Zanetor Rawlings

If there is anything to comment about the Rawlings, it will be their avid taste to man the affairs of this nation. Zanetor Rawlings has done an appreciable number of her time scouting for votes as she strives to seek a parliamentary bid. Her political tactics are best traced to her father’s grassroots campaign tactics and it will not be a surprise to see her advance to a presidential bid in the next 8 to 10 years!

Georgina Theodora Woode

As Ghana’s first ever female chief justice, the legal luminary is most feared among all political parties as she is considered strictly non-partisan and skewed.

Georgina Woode is documented to have held Ghana’s peace intact during the landmark election petition which placed Ghana’s political system in a lockdown for several months.

Georgina Woode may not have announced future plans of standing for president but if she truly wishes to, her credence and political expedience best gives her a brighter chance of winning.

But who among these five women best fit to be president of Ghana? Leave your comments below.
