The honourable member of parliament for Krachi West constituency while addressing parliament house on Tuesday, March 8, 2022 has indicated women have over the years proved to be better and competitive managers.
According to her, March 8, 2022 being International World Women’s Day, has instigated her to congratulate all female mps in the parliamentary chamber.
The NDC lawmaker also disclosed that, Ghana’s economy wouldn’t have been in a mess if we had a female personnel in charge of the finance ministry.
“Mr Speaker, I dare to say that when women are in position, they do better than the men. I also dare to say that if the Finance Minister were a woman, we would not find ourselves in this situation that we find ourselves in.”
“In short, what I am sayings is that women, we can perform, we can do better at all times when we are put in certain positions. So in the next NDC government, I am advocating that the Defense Minister should be a woman, the minister for the Interior should be a woman, the Finance Minister should be a woman so that Ghana will move forward in the right direction.
“As we celebrate International Women’s Day, I would like to take this opportunity to salute the forty women in Parliament who, out of all odds, have fought very hard to be the representatives of the people,” Hon. Hellen Adjoa Ntonso said.
