A stalwart member of the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and former aspirant parliamentary candidate for the Asokwa Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Mr Sadat Ahmed Anwel has expressed passionately on the unwarranted attacks on Professor, Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang by the ruling party, saying; it’s childish and an attempt to undermine women empowerment in governance.
The self-inflicting behavior of leaders like Wontumi to vomit such unguarded remarks on the woman and it’s unfortunate for the president and educated men and women in the NPP to allow him (chairman Wotumi) to continue on this evil agenda. It’s a fail mission and the NDC will never relent on their focus in winning the 2020 general elections.
Jane and John, he said, has become a thorn in the flesh of NPP considering the track record of the two leaders when they were in power. Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, under the able leadership of John Dramani Mahama, was able to convert the nation’s Polytechnics into full technical Universities, the proposed 200 Community-day Schools, 123 of them were constructed and commissioned. These schools are now absorbing a huge number of Free High School students today. This Community Day Schools programme was aimed at initiating progressive, free and quality programmes by the party (NDC). ”If Jane Naana and John did not build the infrastructure, where will Akufo-Addo kept his free senior high students…since the NPP took over power, we are in the last year to the 2020 elections, how many schools did they (NPP) build, we need to know”?
Mr. Ahmed stated emphatically that the intimidations and the brutalities meted out to NDC members in the glare of the president will serve as a bad presidency in the history of mother Ghana. The day to day attacks from the NPP on the woman is rather making her popular because she is of no fault to talk about. However, every dead animal always screams during death and that’s what the NPP is doing. The unprecedented performance of John and Jane is still hunting the NPP of what strategy they are to use to remain in power.
The NPP abysmal performance is hunting them however; the propaganda that brought them to power will send them back to the opposition. Akufo-Addo and his party have realized that the grounds are not favourable and the only ill strategy is to attack the personalities of Jane and John. ”it’s cool with the NDC because the NPP is miffed to see women occupying key position…they have shown such gross disrespect to Madam Charlotte Osei, former EC Boss, their own Hawa Yakubu, Madam, Otiko Djaba, Hajia Halima and many more exposing their like for women”.
The young politician, who is full of realistic ambitions, extolled the rank and file of his party for committing both human and financial resources into the upcoming elections. The preparedness and the alacrity are so positive and result-oriented steeps, hence encouraging all and sundry to fuel more energy in what they are doing to ensure we recapture power from the NPP on December 7.
