Miss Tia issue: Let us encourage women empowerment

The whole issue with Miss Napaga Tia Sulemana, the Presidential Staffer has been blown out of proportion. I think she meant it for a joke just as she stated in her apology. Clearly, one could deduce Miss Tia was just creating humor with the current "This Nonsense Must Stop" slogan like everyone is doing on social media.

So why the hypocritical crucify of her by the very people doing same? Besides, until the NDC picked and packed it as political propaganda, we all laughed about it and saw it as the joke that it was.

Moreover, she has humbly apologized so why the call for her resignation and the continuous heckling and abuse of her? Seriously, I find such call for her head very sad and out of place, and so must be brought to a halt.

Women are fragile and such things tend to break them, and make them coil into their shells thereby preventing them from giving off their best to the benefit of all. This is one of the many reasons why most women don't want to get involved in politics and other aspects of society which can help in nation building.

From the words of Dr. Kwegyir Aggrey and observations around the world, women easily bring greater improvement and growth in whatever they get engage in, especially when they get the needed motivation, so for the greater good of society and our nation building, I will advise the public to encourage and be of great support to her and all other women who find themselves in similar situations rather than their abuse so that it can help increase women participation in all aspects of society.

Thank you
