Madam Patricia Appiagyei, Member of Parliament for Asokwa says her mindset is to ensure that before she leaves power women in Asokwa would be resourceful.
Speaking to the media during a capacity building workshop she had put together for polling station women organisers in Asokwa, the legislator said nothing beats being a resourceful woman.
Apart from the dignity it brings, the MP said it makes women independent and enables them to share in the responsibilities in the house with their partners.
“My mindset and desire is to see women in Asokwa do well in life and in business.This orientation workshops I hold every time is to achieve that aim of mine and make women break the old mentality that they are dependent on their husbands for everything”, Madam Appiagyei stated.

This, she said would make women resourceful throughout life, urging them to take seriously the lessons from the resource persons and facilitators.
“We are able to help home very well when we are in business and are resourceful.Therefore it is very important for polling station women organisers to take advantage of these workshop their industrious MP puts together for them to learn something new”, Madam Ampomah noted.
