The Minority Women Caucus in Parliament has pledged its support and loyalty to the former President John Mahama’s running mate for the December 7 polls, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang.
According to the female MPs, the former UCC Vice-Chancellor is a woman of immense integrity, who many women, would take inspiration from when history is made and she’s elected as the first female Vice President in the country.
“Please bear in mind that we as female parliamentarians are looking up to you, young ladies are looking up to you as a role model, and all women of this country are looking up to you to represent their interest in the governance of this country.”
In a congratulatory message to the Prof following her nomination and approval as running mate to former President Mahama, the Minority Women Caucus assured her of their unflinching support to the party’s cause and urged Ghanaians to give the NDC their mandate in December 2020.
“We want to assure you that, the Women Caucus in Parliament is solidly behind you and we will use all our strengths to push you to the top. We are also calling on all women and men who want to see a change in the governance system of this country to support us make history in our time,” they said.
“As women, words cannot describe our joy that finally a major political party in Ghana and a highly possible party to form the next government has selected an accomplished female running mate like your good self for the upcoming election.”
The statement signed by Second Deputy Minority Whip and Vice-Chairperson of the Women Caucus in Parliament, Comfort Doyoe Cudjoe Ghansah also acknowledged that “the journey to the high office will be arduous and fraught with many obstacles, but we encourage you to remain focused, strong and courageous until we make that history of electing the first female Vice-President of this country.”
“…We are not surprised at your selection because of your hard work in both private and public life. We have no doubt that bringing on board your rich experience in leadership and intellect, you will deliver to the admiration of all as Vice-President should Ghanaians give the NDC the mandate to govern the country in December,” the Ada MP noted.
