The People’s National Convention Party (PNC) is worried that after all the hue and cry over poor representation of women in governance, the situation hasn’t changed.
Madam Janet Nabla, General Secretary of PNC has consequently sent a message to President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo to appoint more women into national leadership this second term.
She made her request known through a statement and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), stressing that he didn’t right by women in his first term as you could count the women in the President’s first term administration.
Madam Nabla says that there’s no longer any excuse for him to swerve women this time round.
“The President should appoint women as ministers, Deputies, Ministers, MMDCEs, Board Members, among others to reflect his role as Gender Ambassador of the African Union,” she said.
Janet Nabla also said that women could be good leaders when given the opportunity and that President Akufo-Addo should allow them to showcase their leadership abilities just like other African countries such as Rwanda, Kenya, South Africa and Egypt.
She also noted that statistics from the Electoral Commission showed more women had registered and voted than men in the 2020 election, therefore, they should not be pushed to be backbench when it came to appointment to offices.
