She associated strongly with some of her colleague parliamentary candidates who have undertaken similar interventions to alleviate the suffering of their constituents, noting in particular Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu who has decided to pay the May 2020 salaries of all private school teachers in his constituency as well as the NDC Parliamentary candidate for the Awaso West Wuogon Constituency John Dumelo who alao provided data bundles to students at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA). “Such pragmatic leadership is what is needed at this critical time of COVID-19”; Hajia intimated.
