The high-achieving woman was approved by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and she made history as the first female to be selected by a major political party.
The trailblazer and ambitious woman received massive endorsements from Ghanaians in and outside the country.
Prof Opoku-Agyemang has since been on the media radar and her family has also been a subject for discussion.
Recently, a photo of her son, Kweku Opoku-Agyemang, who holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, emerged on social media.
Subsequently, Legit.ng sighted photos of all three children beaming with smiles as they posed with their mother, who is also a former education minister.
The family photo was shared by social media user, Oscar Yaw Doe, and has been re-shared by several online portals.
Legit.ng throws the spotlight on the children of Prof Opoku-Agyemang and their laudable education achievements.
All three children earned their undergraduate degrees from the University of Ghana in Legon.

2. Kwabena Opoku-Agyemang, PhD in English literature from the West Virginia University.
3. Adwoa Opoku-Agyemang, PhD in comparative literature from the University of Toronto.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the Ijaiya family in Offa have not only achieved a great feat in academia, but they have a rare thing not many families can boast of.
The family is home to 10 professors in different fields. It should be noted that among the professors are former deputy vice-chancellors, deans, and senior academics.
They are also in various Nigerian universities across the federation. One of them, Prof Bayo Lawal was said to have become a professor in his 40s.
In other news, a Nigerian-American family has set a new standard in parenting as all their four children became doctors like their father.
This kind of thing could only have been achieved through dedication and great parenting skills, without leaving out the place of the community that would allow such growth.
