The Tertiary Education Students’ Confederation (TESCON) Women Commissioners (WOCOMS), with representation from all the 10 regions of Ghana, have endorsed and declared their unflinching support for Madam Kate Gyamfua.
Madam Kate Gyamfua is aspiring for the position of the National Women’s Organiser of the New Patriotic Party in the upcoming national delegates’ conference, and according to the group, they are convinced she is the right person for the position, having depicted her passion to lead, exhibited kind-heartedness, humility, generosity and hard work.
At a press conference in Accra to declare their support, Martha Birago, TESCON WOCOM President at Baptist University College, who doubles as the spokesperson for TESCON WOCOMS, noted that the group has keenly taken notice of the various campaign messages of the other aspirants, and so far, Kate Gyamfua’ manifesto stands tall.
Birago described her policies as revolutionary: for the first time, TESCON WOCOMS would have a desk totally devoted for the affairs of TESCON WOCOMS at the National Women’s Wing Secretariat.
Other policies, she outlined, are periodic health screening, entrepreneurship, mentorship and securing scholarships for graduates, especially women.
She also stated that Madam Kate has plans to organise workshops, seminars, refresher courses, symposia and forums, all with a view to train WOCOMS in their political life and life after school.
“Our research findings made it clear to us that she is genuine and has been around for a very long time.
“She has also been through the ranks, from being a polling station chairperson, women’s organiser for Akwatia for eight years, life patron of the Eastern Regional women’s wing and a party financier since 2000 before becoming a party figure when she served as deputy National Women’s Organiser to Otiko Afisa Djaba,” she intimated.
Given that, she stressed that as a women’s group, they need a selfless and approachable women’s leader, one whose arms are open to all, irrespective of one’s age, gender, religion and financial or social status.
Birago recalled how Madam Kate Gyamfua became a source of hope during the dark nights in the run-up to Election 2016 by leading ‘Women for Change’ to campaign vigorously for the NPP with her own resources.
“During the delegates’ conference in Cape Coast, the party secured accommodation for the TESCON presidents with no attention to the WOCOMS, but Mama Kate, who couldn’t stand this injustice, stood her grounds and transported all of us from the 10 regions out of her own pockets. She also fed us for the entire three days that the conference lasted,” she further recalled.
