Hohoe Constituency branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has commended President John Dramani Mahama for the honour done its Member of Parliament, Dr. Bernice Adiku Heloo, who was appointed a Deputy Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation.
Addressing a press conference at Hohoe, Constance Tumawu, the Constituency Chairman, said Dr Bernice Adiku’s appointment came as no surprise to them as a result of the positions she has held in the past.
The Constituency chairman expressed the confidence that Dr Adiku would live up to expectation.
He said this is the first time since the inception of the Fourth Republic that the Constituency has had a ministerial position.
Therefore, they pledged the party’s support for the Deputy Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation Minister, whom they believe will bring honour and respect to the municipality.
The constituency Women’s Organizer, Mary Ofori, was optimistic that the elevation of the MP is a sign of good things to come to women in the area and her position will spur other women on to strive to climb the political ladder.
The Deputy Organizer, Alhadji Yusif Abdulai, pointed out that the party is solidly behind Dr Bernice Adiku and will back her to succeed to confirm the confidence reposed in her by the President.
