A communication team member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Agyenim Boateng has discredited Prof Jane Naana Agyemang’s competency to ascend the Vice Presidency office come December 7.
According to him, Naana Agyemang is incompetent, inexperienced and lacks what it takes to hold office as vice president.
Speaking on Rainbow radio’s Nyankonton Mu Nsem, Dr Boateng said the National Democratic Congress will lose votes for choosing Naana Agyemang as running mate for their flagbearer, John Mahama.
“The votes the NDC garnered in 2016 will reduce drastically because of their choice of running mate. The woman lacks the qualities as a running mate. A vice president should be an experienced economist because you are in charge of the economic management team. It is a big mistake for the NDC to have selected her,” he charged.
He added, “some are claiming that we are speaking against women. That is not what we are doing. The NPP has a track record of promoting women to the highest level and so, we cannot attack her [Prof. Opoku-Agyemang]. But we will also not stop exposing her incompetence. She is incompetent and does not qualify to hold the office of vice president.”
In his view, the NDC could have chosen Hannah Tetteh who he believes is more competent than Prf Jane Naana Agyemang.
