The Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources, Madam Cecilia Abena Dapaah has donated 10 brand new motorcycles, a cross country vehicle and two large-size water storage tanks to the Ashanti Regional women’s wing of the New Patriotic Party.
Presenting the items Sunday evening at a brief ceremony at her residence at Ridge-Nhyiaeso, the veteran NPP stalwart and Minister said it was a delight to give back to the party she loves.
She noted that the party needed every vote in the upcoming general elections and therefore added that every effort needed to be expended in providing support to party activists to work.
Failing to disclose the total cost of the items, Madam Dapaah said what was important was to get party people to work their socks out to help retain the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in office for another four year term.
‘’This gesture is to assure you of my support for the massive work you are doing and to encourage you to do more so that we can secure for our leader, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for more years to do more for us and all Ghanaians’’, the intelligent Minister stressed.
The Sanitation and Water Resources Minister tasked party activists to take particular interest in educating the electorate on the proper way of casting one’s ballot in the upcoming 2020 general elections.
She noted that it was useless to waste time to campaign and fail to educate people on how to vote in the proper sense or manner.
Madam Dapaah urged the women’s wing to educate people to reject already stamped ballot papers since that could be fake.
She also insisted that they take ballots that are folded in the long and vertical manner so that when they thumbprint the mark would stay in the space provided for the same.
‘’We will win this election but our task is to continue with our vigorous campaign as well as voter education so that we bank all votes cast for our venerable President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and our MPs across the country’’, Madam Dapaah posited.
Commending the Minister, Nana Ama Ampomah, Ashanti Regional Women’s Organizer who was flanked by members of her outfit said the gesture was a rare one.
The women’s organizer asked other persons in the party including Ministers and other government appointees to learn from Madam Dapaah and support the wing.
According to the women’s leader, there are over 100 identifiable groups in the region supporting her outfit to reach out to the female folk ahead of the general elections.
Such groups and persons, she indicated needed support and resources to make their work effective and smooth.
‘’We as a group are eternally grateful to our mother and stalwart of our party for this gesture and we pray that many well meaning individuals in the NPP see this and emulate same to resource our party so that we can reach out to all persons to vote for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and NPP MPs on December 7’’, Madam Ampomah noted.
