To this end, the women’s wing has rolled out different campaign strategies meant to ensure that the NPP achieves this feat.
However, according to the NPP women’s wing, the party is poised to extend that vote difference to at least two million in this year’s election.
Speaking to the media at the party’s Asylum Down Headquarters in Accra yesterday, the NPP National Women Organiser, Kate Gyamfua, noted that policies of the Akufo-Addo-government were crafted with women in mind. She therefore urged the women to lead the charge in ensuring that the party achieves its two million votes difference margin.
“Men have also benefitted from this government, but women have been the ultimate beneficiaries. This is because when there is no food in the house or we see others going to school while our kids are home, we the women feel the emptiness and the pain the more.
“So Akufo-Addo’s Free SHS, the NABCO, the allowances that are supporting our children with their feeding in schools and all that have come to relieve us women,” she said.
Ms Gyamfua spoke to the media after the NPP Diaspora Women and Premier Ladies Club had presented some items to the women’s wing.
The party’s Diaspora women’s wing, led by its president, Nana Ama Serwaa, presented 1,500 T-shirts and Lacoste, wristbands, party scarfs and a cash amount of GHC15,000 to the women’s wing.
The Premier Ladies Club also presented bags of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) such as thermometer guns, face shields, hand sanitisers, among others, to the wing.
Receiving the items at two separate brief ceremonies, Ms Gyamfua expressed appreciation to the groups for their support for the party.
“We know what you have been doing for us, but due to the times that we are in, we were not expecting much from you. We are overwhelmed with this donation, and I promise that the women’s wing will use them to achieve the intended purposes,” she said.
She urged the diaspora women who are in Ghana to support the campaign, especially in areas where the party’s candidates are females, to ensure that the NPP presents the highest number of female MPs to the next Parliament.
Victoria Nyarko Owusu Achiaw, NPP China women organiser, on behalf of the diaspora women, assured the women’s wing that they would continue to support them in everything they do.
