Former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings and her daughters were at the Dome of the Accra International Conference Centre to watch Ghanaian musicians clash with their Nigerian counterparts last Friday night.

It would be the last time Nana Konadu is partying out late before the July 8 all-important primaries to decide whether or not she would become Ghana’s first female Presidential candidate and hopefully first female president.

Nana Konadu was ‘dressed to kill’ as usual and did not leave behind her hallmark red lipstick, with blue eye shadow. Her daughter, Ezenator, was also impeccably dressed and the two raised eyebrows as people stole glances at them in utter admiration.

Nana Konadu, since last year, has not missed any of the big stage entertainment shows held in Accra. In what appears to be a subtle but strategic campaign, she has patronized almost all the big entertainment events in what is suspected to be a clever move to endear herself to the showbiz community and youthful population.

NEWS-ONE cameras caught the 62-year-old Nana Konadu as she cat-walked the ‘Yellow Carpet’ at the Ghana Music Awards last April. Again, she turned up, almost dressed to kill, at the FAMOUS 5 concert where she was caught on camera boogieing with Abrantie Amakye Dede, the Highlife don and Kwami Sefa Kayi, amongst others.

Though she has four children and grand-children, Nana Konadu has still got very sexy looks that make her appear far much younger and appealing than her actual age.

The former First Lady is a very good dancer and an outgoing person.

“I used to like night clubs…I would dance from beginning to end but he (Rawlings) didn’t like night clubs so he preferred to sit and have a cup of tea or something. But he would do that for me- take me to the night club,” Nana Konadu noted when she divulged some information on her much younger days to Joy FM.

She has remained an assertive woman who has by all standards demonstrated the qualities of an astute politician. It therefore did not come as a surprise when some National Democratic Congress (NDC) members proposed that she compete with President Atta Mills for the flag-bearership slot of the party for the 2012 election.

“My desire is to see the emancipation of women at every level of development to enable them to contribute and benefit from the socio-economic and political progress of the country. Their participation will help to achieve the aims of the United Nations Declaration for Women; Equality, Development and Peace. Women’s vital role of promoting peace in the family, the country and the world at large must be acknowledged.

And to do this, they must be empowered politically to equip them adequately for the challenges of critically identifying and assessing situations for the betterment of society,” has been her mantra and motto.
