We need to see significant progress towards achieving the global targets and this means the involvement of women and girls in decision and policy making would contribute significantly to our national development.

Currently, women in Ghana’s parliament are 37 out of 275. We must collectively advance appreciation of more women in other sectors of the economy and try to keep it sustained

The president has an opportunity to appoint more qualified women as MMDCEs to compliment Ghana’s striving agenda to involve and benefit from the needful contributions women provide.

AbibiNsroma Foundation affirms strongly that in the scheme things as it prevails now with the president about appointing MMDCEs, we encourage Mr. President to use this moment to increase the number of women in the development of Ghana.
