Deputy Minister of Energy and Member of Parliament for Afigya Kwabre South Hon. William Owuraku-Aidoo has trivialized the appointment of Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as the running mate to the opposition National Democratic Congress John Mahama ahead of the December general election.
Speaking with Kumasi-based Pure FM monitored by Talsafrica.com the Afigya Kwabre South Legislator reacted that, “Jane Nanaa’s” nomination will make a little difference to the already dwindled chances of the National Democratic Congress in winning the December elections.
“in the first place, we will congratulate her on her nomination to partner John Mahama but like I say always, the value is the same. It is not Auntie Naana whose image will be on the ballot sheet on December 7. It is John Mahama’s image that will be there as this is the first time an immediate former president and a sitting president will be in a challenge. The comparison is clear.”
Hon. Owuraku-Aidoo categorically stated that her addition does not scare the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He also added that if Naana was that good the National Democratic Congress would have used her as their presidential candidate to redeem the credibility deficit of the party.
“She does not scare us at all. If the candidate being brought is incompetent, the running mate will make very little difference. Her nomination can’t change anything because the ultimate decisions of the country are made by the President so if she was that good, why didn’t they use her as their flagbearer” he asked
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Mahama appointed his former Education Minister, Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as his running mate for the 2020 general elections on Monday, July 6, 2020, at a meeting of the NDC’s National Executive Committee (NEC) at the party’s headquarters at Adabraka in Accra.
