Rev. Mrs. Rita Korankye Ankrah, affectionately called Mama Rita, has done it again.The president of the Royal Ladies Ministry of Royalhouse Chapel International once again gathered women from the length and breadth of the country at the Central Cafeteria of the University of Ghana to hear words of empowerment.
Lining up men and women of God in the likes of the Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, Rev. Mrs. Faith Ngwale, Apostle Mrs. Lyanne Koffi and Rev. Eric Xexemeku, participants were taken through messages that in no doubt left them empowered.
Crowning the three-day event themed, “My Name Will Be There” Mama Rita delivered a message that can only be described as superb.She emphasized the importance of the conference in the lives of women. “We are gathered here to be empowered spiritually, economically and financially to stand on our own,” she said.
The woman of God said it was time for women to move from the misconception that their place is the home and kitchen and take their rightful positions in the nation.
She said if women are given equal opportunity they will do the same as the men and even better.
“We will not continue to be called poor, ignorant and unintelligent. We will move on, climb the academic, political and economic ladder, as we climb we are not leaving our children, every sensitive position we will occupy with our children,” Mama Rita said.
The woman of God took the opportunity to also pray for the peace of Ghana as the county lace its boots for the December elections.
“We pray and say that the 2012 election shall be peaceful, as for us women, Ghanaians and Royals we say Peace, Peace, Peace.”
