Member of Parliament(MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong says the running mate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang can only be compared with Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh and not Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
The running mate of John Dramani Mahama for the 2020 polls, has on several platforms been compared with the Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
Members of the National Democratic Congress have said her appointment as a running mate will bring sanity to the Vice President’s office when the NDC wins power in 2021 because she brings on board an impeccable personality and not a soiled reputation like the “dishonest Bawumia”.
But speaking on her appointment for the first time, Kennedy Agyapong said Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang cannot be compared to Dr. Bawumia but should be compared with the current Education Minister.
“We will bring her record. When she became Education Minister. You cannot compare the woman to the Vice President because he’s the sitting Vice President who has done so well. If you look at the history of Ghana and all the old Presidents we have had, it’s only President Akufo-Addo who has given the Vice President chance to shine and you know Dr. Bawumia is intelligent so he has shined.
So now when you come with a woman and you think the woman will brighten your political fortunes you are lying, you cannot win. We are not comparing Jane Naana to Bawumia, we are comparing her to NAPO. So you have to look at what NAPO has done as Education Minister then you assess what she did as Education Minister then you can tell if she will be a competent Vice President to help Mahama.
