The governing New Patriotic Party, has outlined five reasons why the approved running mate Prof. Jane Naana Agyeman is a wrong running mate choice for John Mahama come December 2020 general election
In a statement of the governing New Patriotic Party sighted Talksafrica.com, NPP indicated that during the tenure of Prof. Naana Agyeman as the Minister responsible for Education teachers were the hardest hit.
According to the NPP teachers under the Leadership of the professors as the Minister responsible for Education teacher were been treated inhumanely with the introduction of teachers working for two years without being paid and being restricted to being paid only three months back pay, no matter how long they had worked.
In the statement, NPP also argued that it was during her tenure as the Minister of Education, that classroom teachers were denied common chalk to be able to write on blackboards adding that, the infamous “We won’t give you chalk today or tomorrow” comment by Matilda Amissah-Arthur, was under the supervision of Naana Opoku Agyemang.
The NPP also claimed that, the newly appointed running mate will not have the support of women because of her direct involvement in the signing of a petition to have the Montie Trio released when they were jailed for threatening former Chief Justice, Georgina Theodora Woode and other justices of the Supreme Court.
The governing NPP further argued that the Professors, superintended over a supposed Progressively Free S.H.S where students were made to pay Gh1500 to GH1700 per student in some schools adding that, It is on record that, monies budgeted for and approved by Parliament to be paid on behalf of students as day students were never paid till date.
They concluded by stating that, the choice of Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyeman by Mr John Dramani Mahama is a clear indication that he does not take the Ghanaian electorate seriously.
“But then as our own Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has famously said, it does not matter who the running mate is, if the main man himself is indecisive and incompetent, we still have a problem” they further stressed.
