A former Energy Minister and leading member of the New Patriotic Party, Boakye Agyarko, has charged women’s groups in the NPP to take up the task of leading the party’s campaign to retain power in the 2020 general election.


Mr Agyarko said women form the larger proportion of the population in Ghana, hence their importance in any electoral process cannot be overemphasised.

He therefore charged the various women’s groups in the NPP to remain united and rally solidly behind the women’s wing to lead the party’s campaign for the 2020 election.

Mr Agyarko made this call at the weekend while speaking at the launch in Koforidua of the Eastern Regional chapter of the Staunch Queens, an all-ladies group affiliated to the governing party.

No complacency

Mr Agyarko urged NPP members not to be complacent about the successes of the Akufo-Addo government, and think that victory will be handed to the party on a silver platter.

He said the 2020 election, just like any other ever held in the country, will be won on its own dynamics.

He therefore urged NPP members to be ready to offer themselves to work extra hard for victory.

Mr Agyarko also called for vigilance by members of the party before, during and after the 2020 elections.

Improve lives

The municipal chief executive for New Juabeng, Isaac Appaw-Gyasi, declared that the Akufo-Addo government is determined to fulfil all the promises the NPP made in the lead-up to the 2016 elections.

The government also remains committed to an agenda of formalising the economy, as well as all efforts to improve lives through by implementing programmes such as Free Senior High School, One District, One Factory and Planting for Food and Jobs.

Staunch Queens

The Staunch Queens are an all-female volunteer group, formed to mobilise female voters to support the NPP’s push to consolidate power in 2020.

Not only does the group aim to campaign for the NPP in the election, it also intends to help empower young Ghanaian women.

The group’s president, Priscilla Akua Okorno, says its members will also focus on charity work targeting the poor and vulnerable in society.

    Go travelling gianttube If you buy shares in an investment trust when they are trading at a discount, you are buying the underlying shares at less than their value on the market. This may sound like a straightforward bargain but it happens surprisingly often – currently 204 of the 275 trusts on the London stock market are trading at a discount – and it is not an unambiguous signal to buy the shares, experts caution.

    We work together kuntfutube For every Facebook, there are a thousand failed attempts. We tend not to remember their names. If more than just the most fortunate startups and small businesses are to be successful, these CAPTURE elements must be available within the economic ecosystems in which they operate. This requires that we learn to transform the ecosystems themselves.

    Have you got a current driving licence? tube43 According to the poll, Americans oppose defunding by 44-38 percent, but that opposition increases to 59-19 when a shutdown or default comes into the discussion. It gets worse for the defund crowd. Not only do independents oppose defunding by 44-40, but that margin balloons to 65-14 when a shutdown enters the equation. And even Republicans (who support defunding in general by 51-36) oppose the defund plan 48-36 when shutdown or default enter the mix. It will surprise no one that the only subgroup favoring defunding even if it means a shutdown is tea-party-supporting Republicans.

    How much notice do you have to give? newshemaletube The Islamists like blaming the military takeover and anti-Islamist violence on the country's Christian minority. Islamist leaders and rank-and-file members of the movement have been spreading the absurd rumor that the coup was fomented by the Coptic pope and that rich Coptic Christians are backing the military to wage war on Islam.
