Former Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection under the erstwhile Mahama administration, Nana Oye Lithur has asked for forgiveness from everyone she may have offended.

According to the human rights lawyer, she is human and may have stepped on some toes in line of her duty whether in the past or present hence her apology.

Speaking in an interview on Inside Politics on Power 97.9 FM, Oye Lithur, who is seeking to be elected as a parliamentary candidate for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the Adentan Constituency, told host Mugabe Maase it was necessary to ask for forgiveness.

“I have gone rounds in the Adentan Municipality and realized that many people listen to Power FM so there is no bigger platform to express myself than here, so all that I am saying is that we are human beings and you know to err is human and to forgive is divine” she added.

According to her, she would go for the Adenta constituency to possibly take back the seat from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2020 general election.

The Adenta parliamentary seat is one of the swing parliamentary seats in the Greater Accra Region.

The two major political parties, the NDC and the NPP had both held the seat since it was carved out from the Ashaiman constituency in 2004.

The seat is such that, no elected Member of Parliament had ever held it in two terms in office, except the NDC that managed to retain it but certainly not with the same candidate.

The late Opare Hammond of the NPP, won the seat in 2004 and was the first MP but served only one term.

He was kicked out at a national election in 2008 by Mr Kojo Adu Asare of the NDC, but he too did not stay on beyond a term as he was overthrown by his own party man, Emmanuel Nii Ashimoore, in 2012 at the party primaries and went on to retain the seat for the NDC.

Just like his predecessors, Nii Ashimoore too lost the battle at the party primaries in 2015 by Mohammed Adamu Ramadan of the NDC, but unlike Ashimoore who managed to keep the seat after overthrowing his own man Adu Asare, Ramadan failed and Yaw Buabeng Asamoah of the NPP snatched it in2016.
