The newly elected women’s organizer for the Asunafo-North New Patriotic Party branch in the Brong-Ahafo Region, Ama Fosuaa has expressed her determination to mobilize the female folk in the constituency for party work.
According to her, the success of the NPP as a ruling party and government will be largely due to the kind of support women in the party will give it.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper moments after she was announced as the winner of the fiercely contested women’s organizer position, Madam Fosuaa pledged her resolve to draw all women in the area to the NPP fold.
Winning with 286 votes, Ama Fosuaa swept past her two contenders Madam Mary Asare and Madam Winifred Aidoo(incumbent) who garnered 261 and 222 respectively.
Highlighting her vision to this reporter, Ama Fosuaa, the youngest ever women’s organizer stressed her commitment to serve with humility so as to woo more ladies into the NPP.
