Meet the husbands of these Ghanaian female politicians
Ghana has been blessed with strong-willed female politicians who hold high positions in government and have battled it out in the male-dominated field to lead their constituencies as Members of Parliament.
These female politicians are celebrated for breaking the barrier and proving that a woman is indeed capable of holding a very demanding political position while managing her home.
They have been blessed with husbands who have supported their dreams and been a shoulder to cry on when things get dirty.
GhanaWeb has put together a list of the men behind some popular female politicians who have either held party oppositions or served under their party’s administration.
