The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Loyal Ladies at the weekend marked its third anniversary celebration with a walk and funfair in Accra.
The health walk began at the Okponglo traffic light through to the University of Ghana botanical gardens for aerobic sessions.
There were also fun games such as ‘oware’, draughts, sack race and tug of peace.
The anniversary celebration was simultaneously held in similar nature in the regional capitals.
The Vice President of the NPP Loyal Ladies in charge of Public Relations, Adwoa Pomaah Sanwu, in an interview with the Ghanaian Times said the group was created as an incubator to groom female leaders in the party.
“Over the years, we have seen many of our members appointed to leadership positions in the communities and the government, and we are continuing to push to ensure that more women in the country are placed in leadership roles,” she added.
According to her, the event was to mark the existence of the group since March 2016 and the achievements they had chalked.
Ms Sanwu noted that for the past years the NPP loyal ladies had advocated rights of women, promoting good health care to reduce maternal mortality, help the less privileged in society and provide an assortment of goods to sick children on admission in hospitals.
She stressed on the need for the government to the group to help the youth and women attain more leadership positions in the country.
Nadia Gyamfi, an executive member of the group, said the celebration was a success and was proud of how far they had come and was hopeful that greater opportunities were in store for members and for women leaders.
