Meet The Daughter of Late Asantehene Opoku Ware II who is Ghana's First Female Ambassador to Russia.
From a royal Ashanti background, Her Excellency Oheneba Dr. Lesley Akyaa Opoku Ware is the daughter of late Asantehene Otumfour Opoku Ware II, who reigned for 29 years from 1970 to 1999, preceding the current Asantehene. Dr. Akyaa Opoku Ware graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland (RCSI) in 1981.
It takes sheer favour, to receive a presidential appointment, especially when there are many Ghanaians, who may be potentially qualified to be appointed. It was therefore, moments of pure joy, when Oheneba Dr. Opoku-Ware who is blessed with 5 adult children, was duly appointed.
