The running mate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, has asserted that former President John Mahama is the most committed candidate for women empowerment in this year’s elections.
She said he walked the talk by choosing her as his running mate in addition to the pragmatic policies of the party to improve lives of women and Ghanaians.
Prof. Naana Opoku-Agyemang was speaking on a campaign stop at Gomoa Dominasi in the Gomoa East Constituency of the Central Region.
She emphasised that the NDC People’s Manifesto caters to issues that affects all Ghanaians but more with women.
She cited how CHPS compounds benefits women more and the Free Primary Health Policy which will meet many women’s healthcare needs.
In addition, John Mahama’s promise to reserve appointments for women and gender-balanced youth development and entrepreneurship policies will uplift many of women in Ghana.
Prof. Naana Jane asked for the people’s vote for John Manama as President to make her Ghana’s first female Vice President and get on with the work of tackling poverty and development issues.
The Chiefs of Dominasi and the Gomoa Akyempim traditional area commended the former UCC Vice Chancellor for taking up the challenge to serve as a boost for women and called for a peaceful election.
Party functionaries present called on people to reject the NPP at this years polls and vote for the people’s party committed to all.
Prof. Naana Jane urged the residents of Gomoa East to vote for the NDC’s John Mahama and Parliamentary Candidate for the area, Desmond De-Graft Paitoo.
