Deputy Information Minister-designate Fatimatu Abubakari says she is poised to make an impact at the information ministry if given the nod.
Speaking on Top Story, Wednesday, the legal practitioner stated that despite the challenges which may come with the new role, her mandate will focus on representing women in all spheres.
Representing women, she says, will pave way for more females to inculcate the habit of picking up roles in the political landscape.
“I have really had a fair opportunity to represent women’s voice in the New Patriotic Party and in the political landscape so I have learnt over the years to understand what is necessary and to understand the excesses of the work to make sure I represent the voices of women especially very well and to pave way for other young women to have the opportunity to speak out and pick up roles in our political landscape,” she told Evans Mensah.
Fatimatu Abubakari’s comment comes after President Akufo-Addo on Wednesday submitted the names of his deputy ministerial nominees for Parliament’s approval.
Thrilled with her appointment, the Karaga MP also gave her words to avail herself for accountability.
“I will make myself accessible to the media and the public especially to understand that we cannot sit on government policy, we cannot sit on a lot of information. It’s incumbent of us to avail ourselves when the need arises and I recognise that.”
If given the green light, she indicated that she will live up to expectation by taking into consideration the actions of past leadership at the outfit.
“I will tap into the professional and practical experience of the substantial minister whose work is out there for everyone to see. I believe he’s been one of the best among his contemporaries. I can only watch and learn and tap into that knowledge but whatever assignment given the opportunity I am allowed to take up of course I will and try to do my best.”
