Despite holding one of the topmost positions in Ghana, Chief Executive Officer of the Hollard Group in Ghana, Patience E. Akyianu says humility to her husband is one of the principles she put ahead of anything.
She said she does this as an important part of her Christian way of living.
Speaking to YFM’s Rev. Erskine on the Y Leaderboard Series, she explained why that is so.
“We are a Christian family and we try and implement Christian principles in our home. Over time, it hasn’t always been like this. We have matured in our faith.
“I try to adapt to the requirements of my various environment. Home is not work and in the home, it is very clear that my husband is the boss.”
It is easy for me because just as many women wear different hats and switch a lot, it is easy for us”.
Addressing the issue of women in leadership and their role in the family she stated: “I don’t know any woman who has gone to the highest level and doesn’t want a husband; there are actually a few. But most women pretend until it is too late. If we all agree that we want to be married, why then do you want to do the wrong things to send away your man or disorganize your family. It is just about knowing how to adapt.”
