Mary Coker presenting the award to Napo
WOMEN’S Wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has honoured Education Minister
Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, aka Napo, for his contribution towards pushing women’s
agenda in the party.
Prempeh, who doubles as the NPP Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia South in
the Ashanti Region, was presented a plaque during a party programme in Kumasi on
Mary Coker, the NPP Women’s
Organizer for Manhyia South Constituency, who made the presentation on behalf
of the party’s National Women’s Organizer, Kate Gyamfua, said Napo had been “a
strong pillar behind the NPP women’s wing.”
She said the MP had consistently
supported the NPP national women’s wing in various ways, especially in critical
moments that the women’s wing needed help, adding that he had never neglected
the women’s wing. “The minister’s benevolence and his ever-ready-to-help nature
has kept us going forward,” she pointed out.
To buttress her point, she cited
Napo’s significant contributions, which ensured the success of the just-ended annual NPP National Women’s Conference in Takoradi.
“The NPP National Women’s Wing
appreciates your tireless efforts to see us develop so that we can contribute
our quota to ensure victory in 2020 for the party; so we are honouring you
today,” she said.
She passionately appealed to other
leading members of the party to emulate Napo’s exemplary action by also
contributing to the transformation of the party’s women’s wing.
According to her, the women’s wing,
from national, regional to constituency, are determined to play key roles to
ensure victory in 2020 for the party.
