Ghana’s Second Lady, Samira Bawumia is finally set to make a three-day working visit to the city of Philadelphia in the United States.
The visit which was originally scheduled to take place between January 25 to 27 was rescheduled in order for her to accompany her husband, the Vice President, Mahmoud Bawumia to receive medical attention in the United Kingdom.
The vice President was taken ill few days prior to the second lady’s highly publicized visit to Philadelphia.
On March 10, the Second lady will attend and deliver a keynote address at a Dinner dance Gala in celebration of women’s professional and Business empowerment.
The information was contained in a press release by the US-Ghana Chamber of Commerce. It will be her first official visit to the Philadelphia area since becoming Second lady.
The Second Lady will also have engagements with city officials to strengthen Ghana’s ties with city of Philadelphia. Ghana and the city of Philadelphia have a long history dating back to the days of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, who was educated at Lincoln University and the University of Pennsylvania, both in Philadelphia.
The Second Lady’s visit is facilitated by the US Ghana Chamber of Commerce, an organization that promotes economic and cultural opportunities and advocacy between the United States and Ghana. It is headquartered in Philadelphia- USA.
