The chapter under the chairmanship of Minata Pelpuo would among other things canvass for more support among market women for the party and embark on an intensive door to door campaign to win more souls for the NDC.
Mrs Adam said the NDC has a place in its fold for women and would fashion out policies and programmes that would enable women to develop their full potentials and contribute more meaningfully to national development.
She said Professor Atta Mills-led NDC government would ensure a holistic development of women irrespective of their political lineage adding that the “NDC would be fair and honest in its development agenda without discrimination.”
Mrs Adam called for unity and cooperation among the women to enable them to canvass for more support to enhance the party's victory in the December 7 poll.
