Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Gomoa Central, Rachel Appoh, has won an award as the best female humanitarian at the Ghana Outstanding Women Awards 2019
A report was gathered by Peacefmonline that stated the reason why the former MP did not contest again for the seat, stating that she has actually not given up on politics.
The former MP created the impression that the award she currently won lends credence to the fact that she has been working hard behind the scenes.
It can be gathered from her words that she intends to bounce back to the political arena very soon.
During her tenure in office, the former MP also served as a deputy minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection.
