Patriotic Professionals Ghana (PPG) has trained 167 women at Hobor in the Obom/Domeabra constituency of the Greater Accra Region.
The women were trained in various skills to enhance their livelihood. PPG also promised to provide them with start-up capital to start business.
The women were trained in making liquid soap, shower gel, detol and a host of others.
According to the Public Affairs Director of PPG, Ibrahim Yussif Bangsua, this initiative by the group falls within their wider scope of helping the needy, rescuing Ghanaians in danger and building a healthy society.
The training was organized at the invitation of the NPP parliamentary aspirant for Obom/Domeabra constituency, Mr Baba Darison.
Mr Darison was unhappy with the level of neglect that the people of the area have been subjected to.
According to him the level of poverty in the area was completely unacceptable and therefore there was the need to do something about it, this to him included not only organizing programs like this but also kicking out the NDC in the upcoming elections.
Explaining the rational for accepting the invitation of Mr Baba Darison, the Director of Public affairs for PPG,Mr Ibrahim Yussif Bangsua asserted that apart from empowering the women in the area, the time had come for the people of Obom/Domeabra to enjoy their part of the national cake, to do this they needed a legislature who could properly lobby for them, this PPG found in Mr Darison. Therefore the
skills training though meant to enhance livelihoods it was also to serve as a catalyst in getting Darison and Nana Akufo Ado elected.
“ In this election, the playing field is not leveled. It is opulence and affluence on one side pitched against poverty and struggle on the other side. Look at how the NDC is spending money on unnecessary things, yet the people are suffering. It's time that civil society organizations such as ours come in aid of great aspirants who do not have the resources to campaign” Mr Ibrahim Yussif Bangsua noted.
Apart from the skill training, PPG organised free health screening for the people of Ashalaja also a suburb in the constituency, medical drugs worth thousands of Ghana cedis were also shared freely.
According to the Public Affairs director of PPG, over 951 people turned out for the health screening, many of whom suffered from basic ailments which could have been simply catered for under the health insurance policy but for its collapse.
PPG donated several other items to Mr Baba Darison to help in his campaign in the constituency and also reached out to the people to solicit for votes for him and Nana Akufo Ado in the impending general elections.
