The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako has revealed the reason why the flagbearer of the NDC has promised to increase maternity leave to four months.
According to Chairman Wontumi, the NDC is making that promise because its flagbearer has fathered so many children.
Speaking on the Wontumi Morning Show, he revealed that there is no other reason than apart from the fact that the party’s flag bearer likes giving birth.
Chairman Wontumi went further to state that Mahama is the father of Tracey Boakye’s three months old kid.
“He (Mahama) likes giving birth that is why he wants an increase in maternity leave. His last born with Tracey Boakye is 3 months old.”
Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang has said the next NDC government will increase the maternity leave period from three months to four months.
The move is part of the many policies listed in the party’s 2020 manifesto that proves that it cares about Ghanaians.
“I sympathise with young mothers, but you will be happy to know when our manifesto is launched that we have increased the maternity leave [period].
“We have moved it from three months to four months fully paid maternity leave and we are also going to ensure that until the child is nine months, the woman truly has time”.
