One of the workaholic female Members of Parliament that I have come across is the Member of Parliament for Okaikoi South Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Hon. Dakoa Newman. She is selfless, dedicated, humble, and extremely efficient.
One of her attitude which cannot be found in most of our MPs is her ability to interacts with her constituents from time to time. Some MPs only wait for an election year before they are captured in their constituencies but for Dakoa Newman, she is always with her people.
She personally participates in every activity she organizes in Okaikoi South Constituency and this makes her stand out from most of the MPs in the country. Hon. Dakoa Newman has introduced the "Okaikoi South Youth Empowerment Program" which she is using to assist interested youths in her constituency to learn a trade.
Earlier today, Tuesday, 4th May 2021, she enrolled ten (10) young and enterprising men and women as apprentices in Printing and Design. According to her, these vibrant youths will in the next two years engaged in hands-on skills developments in Screen Printing, Large Format Printing, Embroidery, and Digital Printing.
She added that she has taken the cost of their training and they will also be provided with stipends for their upkeeping every month till they complete the training. Check out what the Hon. Dakoa Newman wrote on her official Facebook page:
"This training will come at no cost to them. I will further provide a monthly stipend for their upkeep during the course of the program. I am confident that more companies such as Brand City within the constituency will be willing to enter into productive partnerships that will be mutually beneficial for their business, the youth, and our community. I wish the apprentices the very best in their new chosen endeavor".
If Ghana is to have half of our Members of Parliament to caring like Hon. Dakoa Newman, most youths will be comfortable and the rate of armed robbery and dishonest work will reduce. Thank you Honorable for your selfless work in politics.
