What to Expect at the End of My Tenure
- A revived Women’s Wing that makes NPP attractive to all women in Ghana
- A well-resourced Women’s Organization for the NPP (logistics-wise)
- A Women’s Wing fund—the Osono Women’s Fund (OSOW Fund)
- A comprehensive database for the Women’s Wing
- A Women’s Organization that is globally recognized
My Vision for the NPP Women’s Wing
There are more women than men in Ghana—and a majority of these women are voters. Only a small percentage of the women population holds an NPP membership card. These women include young women in our schools and colleges, in market centers (conducting their private business), in formal employment circuits, and on national unemployment rolls. Along with my Executive Committee and Regional Women’s Organizers,
I intend to launch several initiatives that empower Ghanaian women and make them see the NPP as the number one viable party for Ghana in the years ahead.
For all the extraordinary and significant achievements that the NPP has garnered in the last two decades, we still need to keep the solid base of our womenfolk to enable us to sustain and retain power in 2020 and even thereafter—and to deliver a better, life-enhancing Ghana to all citizens.
I aim to re-energize the women’s front through grassroot mobilization and empowerment.
Meet Kate Gyamfua, The Mother For All
Madam Kate Gyamfua is the current New Patriotic Party National Women’s Organizer. An unwavering and dedicated women’s leader in more than 20 years, Kate believes that women of Ghana can be empowered through training, support and organization—three key factors that can make women an integral part of the economic revolution that the National Patriotic Party has launched in Ghana.
For more than three decades in national and local politics, Kate has been known as a woman with zeal, determination, focus and passion—a natural leader with a knack for women mobilization and empowerment. She is a selfless, honest and sincere executive who doesn’t shy from deep topics and is committed to achieving success for women nationwide.
Ghanaian women—and Ghanaians in general—also know Kate as a strong-minded, trustworthy and approachable leader, a woman who is sharing and caring with an open arm and heart.

My Sources of Inspiration
I derive my inspiration and energy from a generation of smart and strong Ghanaian women who have combined personal fortitude with determination and focus to help advance women’s agenda in Ghana.
I hereby pay homage to these great women who have distinguished themselves in helping the cause of our party and our country:
- Rebecca Akufo-Addo (H.E. The First Lady of The Republic of Ghana)
- Samira Bawumia (H.E. The Second Lady of The Republic of Ghana)
- Ama Busia
- Daavi Ama
- Christine Churchill
- The late Grace Coleman Afigyase (may her soul R.I.P.)
- The late Thereza Amerley Tagoe (may her soul R.I.P.)
- Gladys Ama
- Hawa Yakubu Ogede
- Obaa Yaa Afrifa
- Esther Dzifa Ofori
- Rosemary Equarm
- Sophia Horner Sam
- Rita Talata Asobayire (a strong and reliable NPP NWO two-term leader)
- Otiko Afisah Djaba (now a minister)
All of these strong personalities—and many more—have sacrificed their time, efforts and resources, like many unsung heroines across the Regions, constituencies and polling stations in order to bring our party thus far. We have an onerous duty to carry on their works with tenacity and purpose.
