National Women’s Organiser-elect of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hannah Bissiw, has urged party members not to downplay the importance of her office and that of the National Youth Organiser.

“We have our vision, we have our mission, we have our strategy, and we have our goals, disregard for the two wings of the party is partly to blame for the defeat of the NDC in the 2016 elections and the party cannot win back power without the contribution from the two wings.

“We also form part of the national executive, we are not outside the national executive, the impression is being created if you are part of the women’s wing you are nothing or if you are part of the youth wing you are also nothing.

“They are two important wings of our political party, I think the two wings affected us during the 2016 elections and we were not able to fly,” Madam Hannah Bissiw bemoaned.

Hanna Bissiw defeated other contenders, Hajia Zainab Mahama, who was the incumbent National Women’s Organiser as well as Hajia Tawa Zakari, and Margaret Chiravira to take up the position as NDC Women’s Organiser.

Two other persons who were elected as deputy women’s organisers were Maame Efua and Abigail Elorm.

The voting, which was held at the Pentecost Convention Centre at Gomoa Fetteh in the Central Region, also saw the election of former Municipal Chief Executive of Akuapem North, George Opare Addo, as the National Youth Organiser of the party. –citinewsroom.com
