The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Morrison says President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo owes no apology top women as demanded by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) over his view on women dynamism.
The minister reacting to the issue on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm said some empirical evidence backed the view by the president dynamism because he had proven his point by appointing 30 percent of women into his government.
The President at a recent conference in Canada suggested that not enough movement is being made by women to take up key positions in governance; and that although 30 per cent of his cabinet are women, they are not seeing enough dynamism and activism from the women.
He has been widely criticised by some women activists and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
NDC’s Dr Hannah Louisa Bissiw who made the call believes Nana Addo must apologise for embarrassing Ghanaian women globally.
She further said the president is rather reinforcing gender stereotypes that have long been abandoned, hence, rekindling the sense of patriarchy that is already entrenched in the Ghanaian society.
But the Gender Minister who was with the president at the Women Deliver conference said the view expressed has rather challenged women to do more.
She asked women to rather unite their front and push an agenda that allow women to have the opportunity in the political space in Ghana.
