Samia Yaba Nkrumah, daughter of Ghana’s founding father, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, achieved a historic milestone on Wednesday by meeting with His Holiness Pope Francis.

She was personally invited by the Holy Father to participate in the Second World Meeting of Human Fraternity alongside Mama Gracha Machel Mandela and several Nobel Peace Laureates.

Traditionally, private audiences with the Pope are reserved for Heads of State, government leaders, new Vatican ambassadors to the Holy See, and groups of bishops during obligatory ad limina visits.

While some of the world’s elites have been granted private audiences with the Pope on occasion, there is no documented record of any private Ghanaian citizen having received this privilege until now.

In this regard, Samia Yaba Christina Nkrumah has etched her name in history as the first known private Ghanaian citizen to hold such an esteemed distinction.

A leading candidate for the Jomoro parliamentary seat in the upcoming December 2024 general elections, Samia Nkrumah, commended Pope Francis for his leadership in advocating for peace, social justice, and environmental protection.
