‘I’ve responsibility to retain NPP in power’

The First Deputy National Women’s Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Justina Awo Banahene has observed that her new position has earned her the responsibility to retain in the 2020 elections.

She noted that even though she had done her bit in the past to serve the party in various capacities such as the Brong-Ahafo Regional Women’s Organiser from 2009 to 2013, her new role imposed upon her greater responsibilities.

Describing herself as a grassroots party activist, Ms Banahene indicated that “I will go all out to the ground to help mobilise women especially, across the length and breadth of the country to ensure victory for the NPP in the 2020 elections” and expressed her deepest appreciation to the National Council of the party for her appointment.

“I will also express my gratitude to Madam Kate Gyamfuah, the National Women Organiser of the party and I’m deeply humbled by the honour done her by the party.

“Ghanaians should have absolute confidence in the President and the NPP because I’m of the firm belief that, by the end of the tenure of the current administration, the nation will realise an improved economy.

“Social interventions such as the free SHS, nurses and teachers training allowances, one-district-one-factory, planting for food and jobs, Nation Builders Corps and one-village-one-dam were clear indications of the current administration’s resolve to enhance the living standard of the citizenry.

“I also plead with the grassroots supporters of the party to exercise patience with the government because I’m sure they will get their due reward at the right time,” Ms Banahene assured.

She is a lecturer at the Berekum College of Education and holds M.Phil. in Religious Education from the University of Cape Coast (UCC).Ms Banahene is currently pursuing a PhD programme at the same university. -GNA
