The Deputy Chief Executive of Exim Bank and Chairperson of Patrons of NPP Women’s Wing, Nana Ama Poku Kufuor has donated hand washing items valued at several thousands of Ghana cedis to the Ashanti Regional Women’s Wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The items consisted of 200 pieces of Veronica buckets, 200 bottles of hand sanitizers, 200 bottles of washing soap, 200 boxes of face masks as well as 300 packs of kitchen napkins.
Presenting the items on behalf of the Deputy Exim Bank CEO, Andy Owusu, a representative to the banker said the gesture is intended to enable the women’s wing to respond to the calls on them to help people deal with the threat of the corona-virus disease.
Mr Owusu on behalf of Madam Kufuor promised the wing more support as the party also readies itself for the upcoming general election in December.
‘’As Chairperson of Patrons of Ashanti Women’s Wing Madam Ama Poku feels it is right to support the party deal with the threat posed by the dreaded corona-virus disease so that the public can have items to wash their hands’’, Mr Owusu posited.
Receiving the items, Nana Ama Ampomah, Ashanti Regional Women’s Organiser thanked Madam Kufuor for the gesture.
She noted the timely nature of the presentation, adding that it would aid the party to respond to the calls on it by members of the public.
The Women’s organiser urged other members of the NPP and government appointees to donate to support the wing to deal with the current crisis.
She also appealed to private individuals to show support to the public by donating hand-washing items.
‘’On behalf of the wing I want to thank Madam Kufuor for this donation which is a timely one and I also want to use this opportunity to urge other party members as well as CEOS and party sympathizers to give to support the party so as to be able to deal with the corona-virus disease’’, the Women’s Organiser.
Madam Ampomah stressed the determination of the women’s wing to undertake a vigorous campaign ahead of the 2020 election.
The wing, she noted was committed to doing extra work to ensure the party maximizes its votes in the 47 constituencies of Ashanti.
The aim, Madam Ampomah who is affectionately called ‘Pretty Giant’ noted was to secure a first-round victory for President Akufo-Addo in the 2020 general elections.
