Ghana’s 2016 elections are nearly at a climax and according to Pulse.com.gh independent projections, the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has won an emphatic mandate to lead the country in the executive and legislature to bring an end to the eight year rule of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

One key element of the NPP campaign was the Bawumia family. While Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice presidential candidate campaigned alongside Nana Akufo-Addo, his wife Samira Bawumia will undoubtedly be counted one of the stars (if not the main star) of this campaign.

So who really is Ghana’s Second Lady?
