The all female group affiliated to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Loyal Ladies, stormed various university campuses across the country in what they described as “sharing the NPP love’’ using chocolates.
The event, which formed part of the third anniversary of the group, saw the bevy of ladies sharing 13,000 bars of made in Ghana chocolates. The newly elected MP for Ayawaso West Wougon, Madam Lydia Syram Alhassam, who joined the NPP Loyal Ladies at the University of Ghana, received a rousing welcome from the students who lined up to receive the chocolate bars.
The MP lauded the efforts of the NPP Loyal Ladies and pledged to adopt their programs in her constituency. She assured the students of her continuous support to make their stay on campus comfortable.
Other events in the Greater Accra Region were at the Ghana Institute of Journalism, The Accra Technical University, Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), The Ghana Telecom University and the University for Professional Studies.
The group was accompanied by Mr. Prince Sefah, the Deputy CEO of the National Identification Authority.
In the Ashanti Region, the NPP Regional Organizer, Francis Adomako, led the group to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and the Kumasi Technical University to a festive atmosphere. The Western Region was also not left out as the Ladies from the Takoradi Technical University stormed various campuses sharing chocolates. The new Bono Region saw members of the group in the University for Energy and Natural Resources giving life to the city of Sunyani.
Speaking at a food bazar at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, General Martha Kodua, Vice President of NPP Loyal Ladies, catalogued the many achievements of the NPP administration in the last two years in comparison with the eight years of poor performance by the NDC. This excited the students so much that they expressed their contentment with intermittent cheers and a thunderous applause. She explained that the NPP Loyal Ladies have not taken a day off campaigning since the 2016 elections because they know that John Mahama would want to sneak back into power like a thief in the night so they will continue to make sure the doors are firmly shut and secure.
Speaking to pressmen later, Mrs. Kodua explained that the Valentine’s Day chocolate sharing and food bazar was a novelty of the group and would be expanding to all other university campuses in the next years. She explained that the NPP Loyal Ladies currently had about 15000 membership nationwide and they have added close to 2000 just from their activities on campuses on Valentine’s Day. She said the group would work assiduously to recruit 100,000 members for the NPP in the 2020 general elections.
