Whiles, we celebrate mothers and womanhood on this day, Okudzeto Ablakwa announced on his Facebook page, the rollout of this free package

"We have with immediate effect abolished all charges victims of sexual offenses are required to pay when they submit police medical forms for a doctor’s report. The North Tongu District Health Director and the Medical Superintendents of the Battor Catholic Hospital and the Tagadzi Polyclinic are fully on board to implement this latest MP’s initiative. All victims of defilement, rape, and other forms of sexual assault will now be attended to free of charge. 

"These vulnerable and traumatized victims need our collective support and the removal of all barriers towards securing justice by successfully prosecuting those demonic perpetrators. Hitherto, victims of sexual offenses are asked to pay between GHS150 and GHS400 to have their police medical forms filled by doctors. Under this new dispensation, the medical facilities in my constituency will submit a quarterly report to the District Health Directorate for prompt payment by the North Tongu MP’s office.", he wrote on his Facebook wall.

This got Ghanaians to react massively. Some Ghanaians stated boldly that they can vouch for their lives for the victory of the NDC provided Okudzeto is made the running mate. Check out other reactions.
