Amanda Okyere Kwatia – MP Aspirant
At 27, Amanda Okyere-Kwatia has received the parliamentary candidature of the NDC in the Suhum Constituency and tasked to unseat the ruling MP, a very difficult task which has been unsuccessfully undertaken by previous MCEs and former Chief of Staff, Hon Julius Debrah.
Amanda is a graduate from the University of Cape Coast and an alumna of the International Visitors Leadership Program, a leadership and governance fellowship by the Government of the United States of America for emerging global leaders around the world.
Her role as the Founder and President of the Amanda Foundation is also supporting evidence of why she is qualified to be elected to parliament.
