She is, therefore, to succeed the outgoing Mayor, Mohammed Adjei Sowah.

Prior to her nomination, some NPP youth in the Odododiodoo constituency of the Greater Accra Region, staged a demonstration on Saturday, September 18, 2021, to express their displeasure.

According to the protesters, they would rather the outgoing MCE Mohammed Nii Adjei Sowah is maintained.

But Mr Adjei Sowah condemned their act and disassociated himself from the protest.

In a statement, he declared his support for whoever President Akufo-Addo would nominate.

“We should recognize the President’s authority to nominate individuals of his choice to promote his agenda, and it’s our duty to support the appointees to succeed…

“I totally support all the President’s nominations and commit to continue to work towards the development of the country,” he said.

She holds a Certificate in Marketing, which she obtained in 2003.

She worked with Ghana Commercial Bank as Chief Clerk before becoming an MP. She is a Christian and fellowships with the Church of Pentecost and is married with four children.
