Inside Ghana, has called on the Leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to render an unqualified apology to all women for ridiculing and embarrassing them in the wake of $156 million World Bank facility for educational infrastructure debate in parliament.

“We find commentary in the House by some minority members notably Hon Akoto Osei, very offensive and insensitive to womanhood. Such desultory vituperation with intent to court public opprobrium and ridicule the government must not be entertained in our political space”, the pressure group stated.

In a press release signed by Spencer Quaye, the convener, the group deplored the malicious and rancorous distortions by the NPP to the government’s initiative to provide a major social intervention aimed at improving the quality and facilitating access to education for the girl child in rural Ghana is nothing short of irresponsibility and insensitivity.

“Reducing the debate to free sanitary pads which is indeed a component of litany of initiatives to address a peculiar problem associated with the girl-child dropping out of school and others missing as much as 6 weeks of learning time in an academic year is unacceptable and disgraceful.

Inside Ghana argued that it is no brainer that a political party which prides itself with elitism and the tag of coat-coat middle class will stampede an initiative that will provide quality and accessible education for all Ghanaians in all parts of the country.

In meeting the MDGs, education enrollment for both boys and girls must be encouraged and sustained and natural biological factors that inhibit girls from the classrooms must be addressed.”

“We therefore wish to express our outmost disgust and displeasure at the conduct of the NPP minority in Parliament and the party’s social communicators for bringing such obloquy to this laudable initiative which has brought tremendous positive impacts to many rural girls in Kenya and Uganda.”

“We therefore call on the Leadership of the party to render an unqualified apology to all women and girls.
