In the Akan chieftaincy hierarchy, the Odekro is the lowest sub-divisional chief responsible for ruling a town and making sure the citizens are taken care of.
Members of Parliament (MPs) are elected to serve constituencies by representing the citizens in Parliament. Odekro monitors them by making parliamentary debate proceedings (Hansards) freely accessible to the citizens of Ghana.
Our goal at Odekro is to promote transparency, provide online access to public records and empower citizens to keep an eye on public officials, especially parliament.
Hon. Afeku’s vision is centred on youth empowerment, equal access to education and gender mainstreaming. She has instituted a scholarship programme in the constituency that has 30 girls in Axim Girls Senior High School and 50 others both boys and girls in various schools in an effort to help bright and needy children within her constituency to further their education.
In 2006, she launched the Philomena Yalley Education Foundation to support girl child education in the constituency to honour the memory of her late mother who was an educationist.
She serves on the Road and Transport Committee, The Communications Committee as the Deputy Ranking Member and the Business Committee.
