NCCE Holds Parliamentary Debate, Stakeholder Meeting For Ledzokuku Constituency
The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has held a Parliamentary debate and stakeholder engagement meeting for the Ledzokuku Constituency.
The event which took place on November 27, 2020 at the Methodist Church, Teshie was aimed at providing the Parliamentary Candidates in the Constituency a platform to sell their policies to constituents.
A parliamentary aspirant for the National Democratic Party, (NDP) Mrs. Lucky Mensah, the only candidate present at the event noted that her priority, when voted into power, will be to empower women.”I will partner with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in order to empower women in the Ledzokuku constituency, said Mrs. Lucky.”
“Young women would be assisted by these NGOs into entrepreneurship skills development which can earn them self-employment,” he added.
She also expressed her enthusiasm for coming to the aid of people with disabilities when given the mandate as a member of parliament. There would be research and numerous stakeholder consultations with the disabled to know their challenges and supply them with the appropriate measures,” she said
Mrs. Lucky Mensah again stated that the NDP is willing to invest in the Education sector when given power in the upcoming elections. She said their paramount focus will be on technical and vocational training. That scholarship scheme would be made available for qualified students to deepen their technical and vocational know-how.
She eventually encouraged the electorates to remain calm as they head towards the December 7 polls and to ensure a peaceful election.
