THE EASTERN Regional Women’s Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Shirley Naana Ampem, has asserted that the current economic hardship in the country is responsible for many broken homes.
According to her, the economic hardship afflicted on Ghanaians by the Akufo-Addo-led government is tearing families apart as men are unable to fulfil their responsibilities, leading to altercations and misunderstanding in homes.
She said women, who are mostly into trading, were running at a loss due to high cost of fuel and high exchange rate, making it difficult to maintain the home.
She stated that the New Patriotic Party government lied its way into power and was now being exposed by reality.
The Eastern Regional Women Organiser said this in Koforidua during a maiden meeting with 11 constituency women’s organisers in the region grouped under the party’s Zone Three demarcation of the region.
She charged the women’s organisers to be abreast of current affairs to enable them to have adequate message to campaign in favour of the NDC and why John Mahama must return to continue his unfinished transformation agenda.
The Zone Three Coordinator of the Women’s Organisers, Valeria Bedjaben, who is also the Deputy Constituency women’s organiser for New Juaben South Constituency, urged them to go to the grass roots to campaign for the party with the little resources at their disposal.
