Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo, the wife of the President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo, has advised Ghanaian children to study hard and remain focused on their education.

The incoming First Lady reminded the children about the importance of education to their future aspirations.

“Education is key to your success, so learn hard, stay focused and you will have a great future,” Mrs Akufo-Addo said during her annual New Year party for children at her Nima residence on Sunday, January 1, 2017.

The annual event called “Kids’ Day” – an initiative of Mrs Akufo-Addo – is to provide children mostly from her Nima neighbourhood with a fun-filled day, characterized by eating, dancing, games and a motivational word from her.

In line with her love for children and the vulnerable in society, Mrs Akufo-Addo also donated food items to the children’s ward of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital.

Mrs Akufo-Addo in a message delivered on her behalf by a staff of her office, Mrs Akosua Newman, told Ghanaians her husband Nana Akufo-Addo will fulfil his promises to make Ghana a great country for all.

Many of the inmates and staff, who had looked forward to the annual donation, were touched by the gesture and expressed hope in her continued support for the children’s ward.
