The National Women’s Organizer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Madam Otiko Afisah Djaba has rallied Ghanaian women to rise and embrace the message of change the NPP is promising since they would be the greatest beneficiaries of the policies of the party.
According to her, women were the natural home makers and would greatly benefit from the creation of jobs by an NPP administration.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper in Kumasi during a voter education tour of the Ashanti region, Madam Djaba disclosed women had been the hardest hit by the excruciating economic policies of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
She, therefore, noted women in the country could easily identify with the change the NPP is envisaging and vote accordingly for the party.
The women’s organizer stressed every food item on the market had been affected with the incessant hikes, adding women had to struggle to put food on the table of their families.
According to the women’s organizer, poverty was clearly seen in the faces and surroundings of women groups she visited recently in the Ashanti Region.
Many, she claimed had no jobs to do so as to keep their families together, stressing that daring ones were resorting to very unhealthy menial jobs to keep body and soul together.
‘’My brother you could visibly see the poverty around our women in the hinterlands of the Ashanti Region and it is a wonder to see them still hopeful of better times when the NPP comes back to power’’, Madam Djaba noted.
She added, ‘young ladies who were daring enough to ride the storm of poverty were engaged in menial jobs with some standing around hot coals to bake bread or sell under the scorching sun to put food on the table of their families’.
Promising the ladies, the vociferous NPP Woman encouraged Ghanaians to have confidence in God and in the NPP since the party was bent on implementing the one village one factory module so as to offer employment opportunities for those who are unemployed.
According to her, with the channeling of the one million dollars in every constituency, the NPP would be able to resource the youth to make their lives meaningful.
‘’Instead of allowing our youth to while away in poverty and despondency, the NPP is committed to resourcing those who are desirous of entering the entrepreneurship field’’, Madam Djaba intimated.
Mrs Djaba mentioned plans to resource others who for lack of start-up capital have had to abandon the trade or skill they learnt in school or college.
She urged Ghanaians to cast clean ballots so as to ensure their votes are rightly counted for Nana Akuffo-Addo, the NPP flag-bearer and the party’s respective aspiring members of parliament across the country.
