H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was born and raised in Ga-Maami (Accra Central) and in the Nima area of Accra. Nana Addo is married to Rebecca Akufo-Addo (née Griffiths-Randolph), even though both of them do not have children together, they are blessed with five daughters and an increasing number of grandchildren.

I chanced on Funmi Akufo-Addo the Presidents Daughter Facebook page and she had shared these, rare throwback pictures of her daughter, who happens to be the President's grandchild.

PICS from her Facebook page (link shared above), Enjoy:

Lets get to know about H. E Nana Addo's History as with his father’s residence: Betty House at Korle Wokon in Accra, effectively becoming the headquarters of the country’s first political party, the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC), after it was formed at Saltpond on 4 August 1947. Three of the ‘Big Six’ – the founding fathers of Ghana – were his relatives: J.B. Danquah (grand uncle), William Ofori-Atta (uncle) and Edward Akufo-Addo – the third Chief Justice of Ghana and later ceremonial President of the Republic from 1969 to 197 – his father, Akuffo Addo had politics running in his blood.

Later, Akufo-Addo once served as the General Secretary of People’s Movement for Freedom and Justice (PMFJ). This group led the "NO" campaign in the UNIGOV referendum of 1978, designed to solicit popular support for a one-party military-led State. In 1991, Akufo-Addo was the chairman of the Organising Committee of the Danquah-Busia Memorial Club. Akufo-Addo travelled throughout Ghana to establish branches of the Club all over the country. These branches eventually transformed into local organs of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) prior to the elections of 1992. In 1992, he was the first National Organiser of the NPP and, later that year became campaign manager of the party's first presidential candidate, Prof. Albert Adu Boahen. In 1995, he led the “Kume Preko” (Kill me already) demonstrations of the Alliance For Change (AFC), a broad-based political pressure group to protest the harsh economic conditions of the Rawlings era. Akufo-Addo was elected three times between 1996 and 2008 as Member of Parliament for the Abuakwa South constituency in the Eastern region of Ghana. Between 2001 to 2007, he served as Cabinet Minister, as Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, and later as Foreign Minister under the government of President Kufuor John Kufour

Legal and Business Career

Akufo-Addo stayed in France for five years as a lawyer at the now-defunct New York-based international law firm, Coudert Brothers. In 1975, he returned home to Accra to continue with his legal career. He joined the chambers of U.V. Campbell from 1975 to 1979. In 1979, he co-founded the law firm Akufo-Addo, Prempeh & Co. Akufo-Addo has served on the boards and committees of a number of political, legal, commercial, and social organizations in the country. He was the first Chairperson of DHL (GH) Ltd; Chairperson, Kinesec Communications (Co) Ltd., publishers of The Statesman; and the first Chairperson of the Ghana Committee on Human and Peoples’ Rights. He was responsible, through his association with the US Company, Millicom, for introducing mobile telephony into the country.

Educational Background

Akufo-Addo received his primary education first at the Government Boys School, Adabraka, and later at the Rowe Road School (now Kimbu), both in Accra Central. He went to England to study for his O-Level and A-Level examinations at Lancing College, Sussex. He returned to Ghana in 1962 to teach at Accra Academy Secondary School, before going to read Economics at the University of Ghana, Legon, in 1964, earning a BSc(Econ) degree in 1967. He subsequently studied law in the UK, and was called to the English Bar (Middle Temple) in July 1971. Akufo-Addo was called to the Ghana bar in July 1975.
