COMPARING JANE OPOKU-AGYEMANG TO KAMALA HARRIS IS LIKE COMPARING A CANARY BIRD TO AN EAGLE
Joe Biden has unveiled his running mate, Kamala Devi Harris, and this has consequently sparked a needless debate about the running mate choice of John Mahama in the 2020 polls.
As soon as Kamala Harris was announced by Biden, opposition elements started jubilating, saying a new dawn has come for women to partner males as elections in the two countries inch closer.
According to the NDC, Biden’s choice of a woman justifies Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang’s choice by John Mahama.
These comparisons verge on the ludicrous in a lot of ways. First of all, Hilary Clinton, in the 2016 elections of the US, led the Democrats as candidate but Donald Trump won.
Moreover, when it comes to political experience, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang pales into insignificance when compared to Kamala.
Kamala Devi Harris is an American lawyer and politician serving as the junior United States Senator from California since 2017.
A member of the Democratic Party, Harris is the second African American woman and the first Indian American to serve in the United States Senate. With such a rich political background, she is worlds apart from the rather inexperienced Naana Opoku Agyemang of the National Democratic Congress.
Kamala is too experienced to sign a petition to have incarcerated rapists and murderers released from prison when their terms in prison were yet to expire.
Kamala has distinguished herself as an astute lawyer and politician whose competence cannot be underestimated or questioned and has no history of poor decisions as a public figure.
Kamala would not have asked MzBel to ‘forgive’ self-styled prophet of God, Nigel Gaisie when the latter had raped her.
Kamala Harris would not have denied teachers chalk and other teaching learning materials if she were in a position to take such a decision.
Of course, the American would not have cancelled trainee teachers allowances and pay teachers three months salary arrears if she were in a position to take such decisions.
Kamala Harris would not endorse an expository work of a political figure on a mission to butcher and annihilate her party’s founder from the historical accounts of the party that she seeks to come to power with as Vice President.
Kamala Harris is a woman of class, well groomed in the affairs of politics and would not struggle to represent the American people in the absence of Biden in case they win.
It is instructive to also point out that Americans, just like Ghanaians, would not vote for a party in the upcoming elections because the party has fielded a woman as a running mate.
Joe Biden, it is worth noting, did not appoint Kamala Harris as his running mate to give his candidature a boost because the Democratic Party’s candidate is competent.
Kamala Harris is top notch as opposed to the ordinary one John Mahama has chosen as his running mate. The comedy must end now!
