Mrs Felicia M. Bortey, the Greater Regional Women’s Organiser, National Democratic Congress (NDC), has urged market women in Ashaiman Municipality to vote en masse for the party’s presidential candidate, John Mahama, in the December 7 general elections.

In her interaction with the market women, she said they should vote the NDC back to power to implement the 24-hour economy policy.

Mrs Bortey told the Ghana News Agency in an interview after the program that the arrangement was to ensure that the market women understood the 24-hour economy policy and how beneficial it would be to the country.

“The policy will revive the ailing Ghanaian economy. And this is where the market women have the opportunity to benefit because they will have more time to trade at their own leisure,” she said.

Mrs Borley said the party would visit and interact with all traders in the 80 markets in the Greater Accra Region to explain and sell the policy to them.

She urged party members to take up the challenge of sensitizing the public on the policy as it was their duty to ensure that Ghanaians understood the party and voted for it en masse.

She encouraged the young people who have just turned 18 to fully participate in the limited registration process when it starts on June 3, and urged them to behave during the elections.

Meanwhile, the GNA noted the keen interest of the market women in the discussions, asking questions to deepen their understanding while some sang the “Sankofa” song.
