Speaking to the media at Mim, a popular community in the Asunafo North of the Ahafo Region on Wednesday, Hon Prempeh noted that she had resolved to move on and bear no grudge against anyone or executives of the Tano NPP.
“I still stand by my mantra that I do not fear NPP delegates because I trust that they make judgments and decisions based on good reasoning and therefore I welcome the decision they made last Saturday”, Hon Freda Prempeh stated.
Hon Freda Prempeh who doubles as the Minister for Sanitation and Water Resources 💧 said she was fully concentrated on completing projects she has started in the Tano North Community.

“I am happy doing what I do best and that is to ensure the people in my community have basic amenities as well as developmental initiatives to make their lives less burdensome and comfortable”, Hon Prempeh posited.
