Ghanaians join in celebrating Mother’s Day tomorrow

Ghanaians join the rest of the world to celebrate Mother’s Day tomorrow, as several activities have been lined up by various institutions including churches to honour mothers for their selfless sacrifices.

Social media has not been left out of the celebration mood, as various users keep uploading images of their mothers to show how much they appreciate them.

Despite the joy that comes with the day, others still find it a sad day because their mothers are not alive so they are only left with memories of their mothers, which they share with friends on their social media platforms.

The Ghanaian Times interacted with some individuals in Accra to find out from them how they were going to celebrate the day.

Madam Eunice Amoakoa Botchway, Chief Executive Officer of Poundz World told the Ghanaian Times she intended to celebrate the occasion by sending gifts and ‘surprises’ to selected mothers and potential mothers.

 She said since her outfit was best known for putting together memorable surprises for clients, she found the Mother’s Day occasion as a perfect time to express gratitude to a number of people who have played appreciable roles in her life.

“I want to use this opportunity to urge the public to show love to not just their biological mothers but also, to every responsible woman they know. Every caring woman deserves to be honoured so let us show them love,” she said.

Madam Botchway, who is also an advocate for women empowerment advised persons who played motherly roles in the lives of children who were not their biological wards to show unconditional love to the kids so as to attract blessings from God.

Stephen Krampah, a second year student of the University of Ghana Legon, sent a warmth message of love to his mother saying, “Mummy I love you for all the sacrifices you have made for me. I will forever remain grateful to you.”

Stephanie Birikorang, Marketing Manager of Corporate Security Services (CPS) in Accra also thanked her mum, Madam Rose Birikorang for single handedly taking good care of her and two other siblings since the demise of their father more than 20 years ago.

“My mother saw my siblings and I through school, despite the sudden death of our father, I remember how difficult life was for us and saw how my mother, who is a nurse worked hard to ensure we never lacked anything. Thank you mama,” she said.

Mrs Comfort Sapaku, a mother of two said she could not wait for the day her sons would grow up and join their father to honour her as a mother.

She said she was planning a mind blowing surprise for her mother who had played an instrumental role in her life.

Recounting the ordeal he went through as an orphan, 33-year-old Justice Prempeh told the Ghanaian Times that he never felt the true love of a mother while living with his step mother for she constantly maltreated him.

He said his experience had not prevented him from celebrating Mother’s Day joyfully, but he said he was planning to show love to his wife and responsible neighbours who were caring mothers.

The Women Commissioner of the Graduate Students Association of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GRASAG-GIMPA), Madam Fuseina Issah said, “I will describe my mother, Mrs Salamatu Issah, as an irreplaceable gem. She is everything to me because I saw how she sacrificed a lot of things just to see us happy. She was not there for just my siblings and I, but also for several other people. God bless her richly for us. The Issah family is blessed to have a mother like her.”

Madam Issah also advised the youth to ensure they honour every woman in their neighbourhood or work place because “It is our day and we deserve some love.”
