Flagbearer of Ghana Freedom Party, Madam Akua Donkor was at the Independence Square in Accra to join Muslims observe Eid al-Adha, also called the "Sacrifice Feast".
Akua Donkor appeared to have set for herself the goal of meeting president Mahama as she was seen moments later trying to find a seat on the Presidential dais.
Turned away, Madam Akua Donkor would wait for a more opportune time to get her wish.
After the ceremony was over, Akua Donkor was quick to approach the president while he was heading for his car.
They say if at first you don't suceed, try again. She got her wish.
