The all-female group by name Gratia Women of Substance Network in a press conference today said the recognition and selection of Jane Opoku Agyeman was a step in the right direction.
Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman before her selection was the former Education Minister under the John Mahama administration.
She has held internationals positions such as Academic Director of the School for International Training in the History and Cultures of the African Diaspora among others.
Former President John Mahama also describes Naana Jane as God-fearing, a distinguished scholar, a conscientious public servant and a role model.
“Your strides in your professional career life have taken the empowerment of women to power circles, and gives hope as a role model for direction and hope for all women,” the group stated.
