The role of the First Lady has evolved over the centuries. She is the first and foremost, the hostess of the Jubilee House.
She organizes and attends official ceremonies and functions of the state either along with, or in place of the president.
Throughout the history of Ghana, the role of the First Lady has evolved with each new administration.
We know that the President and the vice President of Ghana receive salaries, but how much does the First Lady make?
Unlike the President who receive salary plus other allowances, the First Lady only receive an allowance as she does not have a clear duties stated in article 71 of the 1992 constitution of the republic of Ghana.
The current First Lady of Ghana is Rebecca Akufo-Addo, who has held the position since 2017.
They are not officially given salary but the Ghanaian First and Second Lady are both given clothing allowances to serve as initiatives to be comfortable enough to advocate the country through material form of culture.
