Hajia Safia, after receiving the award at the ceremony on Sunday night in Tamale, said she was honoured and humbled to be the recipient of the award. 

 She said “This award is not only a recognition of my achievements but also a testament to the strength, resilience, and determination of women in politics. I want to take this opportunity to thank the Northern Excellence Award committee for recognising the contributions of women in politics.”

She expressed gratitude to all the people, who supported her in her political journey saying “To my family, my Boss, the National Women’s Organizer, Maa Kate Gyamfua, the entire National Executives of the NPP, friends, colleagues, and my team, thank you for your unwavering support and encouragement. You have been my rock and my inspiration, and I could not have achieved this without you.” 

Hajia Safia said “As a female politician, I believe that we have a responsibility to make sure that the voices of women are heard and represented in government. We need more women in politics to bring fresh perspectives, diverse experiences, and innovative solutions to the table.” 

 She expressed the need for a culture of inclusion and equality where women were empowered to succeed and thrive in politics adding “This award is not just for me but for all the women, who have paved the way for me and for those, who will come after me.
