There is this wise African saying that old people are library of wisdom and if we want such knowledge, we have to get closer to them as most of such knowledge is passed down orally. The member of parliament for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa took advantage of this advice and started a manhunt for the oldest woman in his Constituency.
The member of parliament upon asking several stakeholders and residents in the Constituency found Grandma Mabel Adjo Nyagah, a one hundred and eleven years old woman who have lived all his life serving North Tongu constituency.
Grandma Mabel Adjo Nyagah lives in the holy village of Aveyime in her beloved North Tongu constituency, and is believed to be my oldest constituent.
During the meeting with the member of parliament, grandma Mabel Adjo Nyagah exchanged sweet pleasantries with him and expressed intense joy for being remembered and honoured.
She thanked Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa for the visit and shared words of wisdom with him.
It’s been a blessing hanging out with her and tapping rare wisdom.
