Women role critical in ‘breaking the 8’ -Cecilia Gyan

The Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese constituency Women’s Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mrs Cecilia Gyan, says women have pivotal roles to play to assist the party to ‘break the 8’ in the 2024 elections.

She has, therefore, encouraged the women wing of the party to actively get themselves involved by being resilient, dedicated and committed to the party.

This, she explained, was the surest means through which they could meaningfully contribute significantly to the party’s quest to ‘break the 8’ to retain power in the next general elections.

Mrs Gyan made this known during the official commissioning of the women’s wing of the party in the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese constituency in the Central Region.

She stated that women were critical to the development of every society and nation building and as such their relevance to the NPP could not be underestimated.

According to her, the era where women hardly had their voices heard in the national political discourse has been replaced with a new era where women have become integral to democratic process.

She appealed to the women’s wing to close their ranks and work assiduously to ensure that the party would increase its fortunes in the constituency, which would consolidate their gains in the region too.

The Central Regional Women’s Organiser of the ruling party, Madam Charlotte Adwoa Antwi, on her part, stated that the party was fully committed to making history by ‘breaking the 8’.

According to her, the party’s commitment to making history by being the first party to record three consecutive political victories under the fourth Republic was feasible, but solely anchored on unity and uncompromised efforts devoid of complacency and divisiveness.

Miss Adwoa Antwi mentioned that the lack of unity often caused the party to lose some parliamentary seats in the central region such as Assikuma Odobeng Brakwa, Twifo Atimokwa, Gomoa East and Assin North among others to the NDC.

“There is about 60 percent to 65 percent probability that we can win the Assin North seat back. Awutu Senya West is a seat that we can easily get, so what I want to tell all the women I work with in the central region is that we should work hard to help the party break the 8,” she said.

The commissioning of the wing followed series of training engagements meant to sharpen their skills to be able to make them effectively work to enhance the chances of the party in the constituency and the region at large.

The Central Regional Minister, Mrs Marigold Justina Assan, the MCE for Kasoa, Anita Obo Amissah and Mr Horace Ekow Ewusi attended the commissioning.
