A former Deputy Minister for Food and Agriculture, Dr Hanna Bissiw, has been elected the National Women’s Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the just-ended National Women and Youth Conference 2018.
They were elected at the Pentecost Convention Centre at Gomoa Feteh in the Central Region where the conference was held.
Dr Bissiw saw off competition from Hajia Zaynab Mahama who was the incumbent National Organiser as well as Hajia Tawa Zakari and Margaret Chiravira to become the National Women’s Organiser for the opposition NDC for the next four year.
Two other persons who were elected to help control the affairs of the Women’s wing of the NDC were Maame Efua Sekyi-Aidoo Houadjeto and Abigail Akwambea Elorm Mensah.
The voting also saw the election of former Municipal Chief Executive of Akuapem North, George Opare Addo, as the National Youth Organizer of the party.
Mr Opare Addo defeated two other contenders, Yaw Brogya Genfi and Wonder Madillo to emerge as winner.
Edem Agbana and Ruth Dela were also elected deputy national youth organisers.
