A former Presiding Member (PM) of the Ledzorkuku-Krowor Municipal Assembly (LeKMA), Agnes Naa Momo Lartey, has commended Ghanaian women for their sacrifices towards developing the country.
She said it is high time men fully allow women to participate in active politics and the chance to take up positions in high places.
She called on women not to underrate themselves, rather they should take challenging roles so as to bring out their best qualities.
Naa Momo made the call when she interacted with the women’s wing of the Krowor Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day at Nungua.
Friday March 8, 2019 marked the International Women’s Day celebration for all women in Ghana and across the world. It is to mark the immeasurable contributions of women to the development of Ghana; including the social, economic, cultural and political development of the country.
This year’s International Women’s Day was celebrated on the theme; “Balance for Better”. The theme focused on innovative ways in which gender advocates can advance affirmative action and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.
Naa Momo Lartey implored the women to forgive each other, especially going into the crucial elections 2020, so as to enable the NDC to win smoothly.
“I have forgiven anybody who might have offended me and I plead with you to forgive me too if I, knowingly or unknowingly, have stepped on your toes,” she pleaded.
“…..nobody should fight anyone, because the NDC is one family, especially now that the party is focused to win elections 2020 where everybody would be needed to prosecute the winning agenda,”, Naa Momo stressed.
Naa Momo Lartey who is aspiring for NDC Parliamentary Candidature in the Krowor constituency, charged Ghanaian women to pray for Ghana, especially, the preparation towards elections 2020; due to the kind of violence that happened in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency by-elections described as dressed rehearsals ahead of 2020 elections.
