Incoming Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon. Elizabeth Agyeman has said she feels so lucky to be working with her substantive minister Hon. Simon Osei Mensah.
Mrs. Elizabeth Agyemang, also affectionately known as the People’s Mother, made this statement when a member of the appointment committee of parliament, Hon. Barbara Asher Ayisi wanted to find out how she would partner her boss to deal with issues confronting young girls in the region.
“I know I have a minister to work with. I think I am also the luckiest person to have a minister who is more than a brother to me. I have done a lot for young girls, especially in my constituency and I look forward to working with my minister to improve the lives of young children in the region at large”. The former MP told the committee.
Mrs. Agyemang also expressed worries over the indiscriminate felling of ornamental plants along the principal streets of Kumasi and also said that, she hopes to bring back reafforestation programmes which will seek to replace such trees to beautify some parts of the region.
This she said will lift the image of Kumasi which used to be the Garden City in West Africa.
Hon. Anthony Karbo also wanted to find out how she would address the numerous issues confronting the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
The former Oforikrom legislator admitted that, past and present governments haven’t done enough to addressing issues confronting the hospital, especially with maternal health but was quick to adaddress she’ll work tirelessly to resolve all nagging issues confronting the nation’s second biggest hospital.
