Madam Comfort Yaa Darbo, a women’s advocate and Assembly woman for Dwaho electoral area in the Ahafo Ano North Municipality, has entreated the citizenry especially males to help build confidence in women to unravel their competence to enable them contribute their quota to the socioe-conomic development of the country.
She says some of the males at times deliberately intimidate the females at any given opportunity when it comes to deliberations on matters of importance, with intentions to discourage them and beat down their confidence.
Speaking to rawgist.com, she cited how the minority in parliament boycotted and ignored Ms. Lydia Seyram Alhassan, Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso West Wuogon, early this week and expressed her displeasure.
The Minority Members of Parliament (MPs) last week Monday refused to comment on a statement by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the Constituency. They had vowed previously not to recognize her as legitimate winner of the recent by-election in her constituency.
The NPP MP, Ms Seyram Lydia Alhassan, was delivering her maiden statement on the floor of the House since she was sworn in on February 5, 2019, during the commemoration of the World Health Day observed every April 7, but the Minority boycotted the event in parliament.
The Minority MPs insisted among other reasons that, they want justice for their party members who were assaulted during the January 31, 2019 by-election.
Ms. Darbo however insists such actions constitute discrimination against women; something the world is trying to stop in order to instill confidence in women.
