NPP women's chapter challenges first lady

By JoyFM

The Eastern Regional Women's Chapter of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has challenged the First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, to make available copies of letters purported to have been written by the NPP calling on the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to refuse the request of Ghana government for loans.

The challenge was contained in a press release issued at Koforidua by the chapter signed by Ms Rosena Addo, organizer, in reaction to a press conference held by the 31st December Women's Movement (DWM) last Wednesday. The chapter said it recognized the position of Nana Konadu as the First Lady of the country as well as the President of the 31st December Women's Movement but "we would want her to draw a line between the two positions. "As the First Lady of Ghana we hold her in high esteem and we equally respect her office." It, however, cautioned, "if Nana Konadu would hide behind the 31st December Women's Movement and insult the opposition leaders, we are ready to respond to her." The chapter observed that Ghanaians are at the moment praying for a peaceful electioneering this year and "one would have expected that as a mother of the nation, she and her followers would be preaching reconciliation to heal the wounds inflicted on some people by the PNDC and the NDC."

On the purchase of the presidential jet, the chapter alleged that the taxpayer is expected to pay 60 million cedis daily for five years "once the presidential jet remains at the hangar." The release reminded chiefs about the constitutional provision barring them from partisan politics and warned those who are openly "identifying themselves with the ruling NDC government to hold themselves in check. The stomach politics which such chiefs are playing would not help them as they are rather embarrassing themselves and their communities for which posterity will never forgive them." The release stated that the problem of Ghana "is mis-management so let us join hands to vote the ruling NDC government out at the forthcoming general elections and usher in a more caring and responsive government.
