I’m The Best to Lead NPP Women: Joyce Zempare
Her compendium of experiences is packed and flipping through the pages of her young and vibrant life, one can tell that she’s has done much fixing and repairs for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and her community at large.
Madam Zempare popularly known as JAY-ZEE is blessed with the appreciable framework of a faithful servant.
While her eyes are fashioned purposely to see the needs of the helpless, her ears are tuned to hear the distress calls made by those on the breadline.
It is for this reason that she has irrevocably declared her intention to run for the National Women Organising (NWO) position of the NPP.
Speaking to the PUBLISHER on why delegates at the upcoming NPP national executive elections should consider her noble aspiration, Jay-Zee makes it clear that the sought for position is not one for trials.
“We need someone who has already been tried, tested and proven and my works are out there for everybody to see,” she said.
Having risen through the ranks from a polling station chairman to a constituency women’s secretary, constituency women organiser and finally to the Greater Accra women organiser for two terms, Madam Zempare says she has the right strategies to build a stronger font for women in the NPP.
“At the regional level, we took over when we had just lost elections in 2008 and we had only won 9 out of 27 seats. In 2012 we worked tirelessly that we moved from 9 to 14 out of 34 and by mercy of God and His favour, we moved from 14 to 21 out of 34 seats. This has challenged me to know that there’s still work to be done,” she indicated.
Zempares’s message is simple—to build the capacity of women, to empower them at the grassroots and to give them the facelift they merit.
According to her, “women matter the most…they call the shots, they are people who bring us the votes for that matter any serious political party knows that their success lies in the women.”
Therefore, when given the mantle to lead the woman in the NPP, Jay-Zee says she would embark on continuous training, and assessment of the party’s performances at the polling stations, electoral areas and constituency level.
“Continuous engagement and mobilisation is what we need to increase membership to ensure victory in 2020 and beyond,” she said.
“I didn’t do it alone for Greater Accra and can’t do it alone now,” she said. “It would be collective thinking, collective effort, and enforcement…this is what would bring the political gains to our party.”
Madam Zempare said she would tirelessly work to propel the vision of the party under the leadership of President Nana Akufo-Addo.
