Don’t shun politics despite attacks - Lydia Alhassan appeals to women in Ghana

The newly elected Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon (AWW) Constituency, Ms Lydia Seyram Alhassan, has advised Ghanaian women not to shun politics despite the challenges of insults, name calling and denigration that they have to go through when they enter into mainstream politics.“Women (by the role they play in society) have a lot to contribute to nation building and it is time for all women to support each other in this enterprise,” she stated.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic at her residence at the weekend, Ms Alhassan observed that “women suffer a lot of injustices when they enter into politics but that should not discourage them; they should rather focus on their positives and make an impact on the well being of society.”

The Daily Graphic had elicited her motivation into politics, her role in the house of the legislature and her views on the minority’s boycott of her induction last week.
