Ghana: 2nd Lady advocates for unity ahead of Nov. polls

Ghana’s second lady Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur has appealed to Ghanaians not to allow politics to divide them ahead of the 2016 elections.

Speaking during a donation in Winneba, Mrs Amissah-Arthur said: “The people in the area must unite for the development of the region and the country towards peace, unity and accelerated socio-economic development.”

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur donated quantity of trays, head pans and nets to the Enyidado Fish Mongers Association in Effutu constituency in Winneba.

According to her, Ghanaians must not allow partisan politics to destabilise the peace of the country because “there is only one Ghana”.

Mrs Amissah-Arthur said government was committed in helping the fishmongers and other professionals. She said the NDC government places premium on the fishing industry because it provided jobs for two million people and reaffirmed its resolve to support women in the industry.

The Second Lady also took her environmental crusade to the area and educated them on the need to be clean and live in clean environment to avoid cholera.

She also called on them to empower their children through education since it remains one of the best ways for the country’s socio economic development, “so that the youth can become our future leaders.”
