Business Woman, Philanthropist and Gender activist, Hajia Jannat Bibii, popularly called Biihi-Ma (Peoples’ Mother) has vowed to lead the NPP in the Wa Central Constituency to wrestle the seat from the NDC.
She made this known in Wa after successfully going through the party’s vetting to once again contest the seat having narrowly lost to 2016 parliamentary candidate of her party, who lost the seat to the NDC in the 2016 elections.
Branded as one of the most famous female Contractor in the country now, she awakened the constituency as the only female in the last contest which she came second. As our elders say, a chicken that will grow into a cock can be spotted the very day it was hatched. Hajia Bibii has always been an inspiration to many, especially women and the youth in her constituency and beyond. Her vibrancy has endured the heart of many floating voters and even members of the NDC.
Addressing delegates and party supporters after the vetting process, Jannat Bibii said “Education, Youth & Women Empowerment, Poverty Reduction, Jobs, Jobs and Jobs for my constituents will be my main priority”.
She continued, “I am confident that I will be elected this time around to redeem my people from the incompetence of the NDC in the Wa Central constituency. My confidence is based on the numerous assurances and support I have received regularly from the delegates and good people across the 150 polling stations. I have been there before. But unfortunately, on my part, the delegates decided otherwise. A lot has transpired through internal upheavals. Relationships need to be repaired, alliances need to be forged, mind blowing strategies to win the seat & stay in power need to be provoked, party rebranding, positioning and reorganization ought to be our main engagement going forward. And I am convinced our discerning delegates will reward my selflessness, hard work, commitment and loyalty over the years.”
