Savanna Regional Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress, Malik Basintale has slammed the Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa for supposed unacceptable comments he made about the Vice Presidential Candidate of the NDC, Pro Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang.
This comes after Buaben Asamoa said former President John Mahama’s choice of running mate is an indication that he does not take Ghanaian electorates seriously. A comment which some Ghanaians have described as an attempt to undermine women in the society.
Reacting to this on Kingdom FM, Malik Basintale said “I would have divorced Buaben Asamoa if I were his wife.”
According to him, the comment is a ‘senseless’ and ‘loose talk’ by a Communication Director of ruling a party to belittle the abilities and capabilities of Ghanaian women who take up leadership positions in the country.
“I didn’t believe what I heard and read. But how can selecting Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agemang as a running mate show that we have disrespected Ghanaian electorates. You can’t make such comments on our mothers. Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agemang is a grandmother to some of us”.
“I’ve been scrolling through Google to get into contact with his wife; and if his wife doesn’t divorce him today then she also doesn’t respect women”, he stressed.
