The people of Ghana have just elected 72-year old, Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party as president. Mr Akufo Addo will be leading Ghana’s government from 2017-2020.
Mr Akufo Addo’s running mate, Mahamadu Bawumia and his wife, Samira Bawumia were some of the biggest stars of the 2016 election. This was largely due to their very young personalities and outlook which appealed to many millennials who were voting in the election.
Samira Bawumia is the only daughter of astute politician Alhaji Ahmed Ramadan, a former National Chairman of the People’s National Convention and Hajia Ayesha Ramadan.Samira speaks 5 Ghanaian languages and is a BA Law degree holder from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
The incoming second lady is a former beauty pageant contestant, TV host and mother of 4 children. Aside, all her academic laurels and achievements, Mrs Bawumia is also an elegant Hijabista who adorns herself in some very stylish outfits and glowing make-up.
Her fashion choices are modest when need be, political and luxurious. As she and her husband join Nana Addo and Rebecca in the Flagstaff house, most fashion critics and insiders will continue to keep an eye on her fashion picks as well as the designer she wears to her numerous meetings and events.
