An Educationist, Mrs Diana Twum has decided to contest the position of Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC). Mrs. Diana Twum, a proprietress of a school is the first female ever to have contested that position.

She made her ambition known to newsmen at a reception organized by the NDC for the Eastern Regional Press Corps at Koforidua over the weekend.

According to her, although the party would definitely win the 2012 election, it needs a woman to mobilize more females, especially the youth to join the numerous young men already in the party to increase both parliamentary and presidential votes at the polls.

There is the need to increase the number of women in the party and I have the capability to do so if elected, she stated.
She said the NDC had done a lot within a very limited period and that judged by its good works, Ghanaians would vote for its retention. Mrs Twum said of elected, she would serve as a role model to attract more women, especially from the NDC to aspire to the top to enable them contribute their quota to national development.

Women are capable of holding any top position, especially in politics just like men, but the only problem is that they shy away from such positions and my resolve to be at the top would encourage others to do likewise, she stated.

In a answer to a question of what she would specifically do to improve the welfare of the people, she said she would identify the potentials of the youth, especially young women to enhance their capacity to earn a decent living.

Mrs. Twum therefore, called for support from the rank and file of the party to achieve her ambition.
