- The hairdresser that was elected to parliament has given her first speech on the floor of parliament
- Her address was received with great enthusiasm from Members of Parliament

The New Patriotic Party's (NPP) Member of Parliament for Akwatia, Madam Mercy Adu Gyamfi, has delivered a speech in parliament for the first time since she joined government's legislative body.
Earlier this year, the Member of Parliament for Akwatia, in the Eastern Region, became the talk of the town after delivering what many referred to as a dismal speech at Ghana's 60th anniversary celebrations.
Recently, speaking for the first time in parliament, Madam Gyamfi addressed the August House and exhibited her somewhat improved command of the English language since her last address at Ghana's 60th anniversary celebration ceremony.
Briefly.co.za learned that to the mild amusement of some parliamentarians, Madam Gyamfi delivered her address and subsequently received a mighty round of applause, and huge support from fellow members of government's legislative body.
