‘Add value, nurture dreams while single’

Mrs Lordina Mahama

 The former First Lady Mrs Lordina Dramani Mahama has advised young ladies to embrace single­ness as a unique gift from God.

According to Mrs Mahama, sin­glehood was a time to educate and add value to oneself either through formal or informal education.

She gave the advice at a three-day 2024 Young Singles (Y’s) camp meeting of the Greater Accra-East region of the Assemblies of God (AG) Church at Shai Hills.

It was on the theme ‘Power to send the light.’

The event was a single’s pro­gramme for young ladies in the church.

She told the ladies: “work on your beauty; this is your prime time where your beauty must not be hidden, your beauty must radiate and glitter.”

She encouraged the young ladies to see that phase of their lives as a golden opportunity to nurture their dreams and aspirations before em­barking on the journey of marriage.

She urged young single ladies to pursue self-discipline, be account­able to others and cultivate the atti­tude of prayer in all that they did.

Mrs Mahama, also a certified coun­sellor, underscored the significance of building individual capacities, pursuing formal education, learning a vocation, and striving to reach one’s full potential.

She emphasised the need for personal care and appearance, urging young ladies to dedicate time to self-care and be mindful of their appear­ance.

She said caring for oneself is not just about physical appearance but also about nurturing one’s inner self and maintaining a positive outlook.

The former First Lady and pres­ident of the Lordina Foundation warned the young ladies against the temptations that come with youth, such as fornication, alcoholism, drugs, and an indecent lifestyle.

She advised them to remain vigi­lant and not succumb to peer pres­sure, encouraging them to uphold self-discipline and godliness in all their endeavours.

In recognition of her generosity and motherly role to the youth of the church and the nation, the leadership of the Young Singles Group presented a citation to Mrs Mahama.
