Political science professor at the University of Ghana, Ransford Gyampo is of the view, the NDC should have outdoored their running mate Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang earlier than they did.
According to him, although better late than never, she would have had enough time to sell herself to the Ghanaian electorate, knowing very well that her appeal in the political cycles is not of top-notch.
Speaking on Joynews’ AM Show, Professor Gyampo warned the governing NPP against attacking the person of the newly selected NDC running mate, Prof. Naana Opoku-Agyemang.
“Some criticisms about Prof. Jane Opoku-Agyemang an attack on womanhood”.
National Communications Director of the governing party, Yaw Buaben Asamoa said John Mahama’s choice of a running mate meant he does not take Ghanaians seriously.
He said Prof. Opoku-Agyemang superintended the cancellation of teacher trainee allowances, the non-payment of full arrears due to newly recruited teachers and many more.
According to the Adentan MP, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang being a woman has not proven in time past to be someone who foregrounds the interest of women.
He said the former Minister was among a league of Ministers and NDC faithful who petitioned then president Mahama to release some NDC communicators who were jailed for contempt of court after they threatened to rape then Chief Justice Georgina Wood on live radio.
The NPP says Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang should ready herself for the fire ahead.
