NPP stalwart and former Member of Parliament (MP) for Nabdam, Boniface Gambila has suggested that former president John Mahama’s running mate, Prof Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang steps down if she can’t face the political heat.
This comes after a group of National Democratic Congress (NDC) women called on Director of Communications for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Buaben Asamoah to retract comments they deem sexist and misogynistic against Naana Agyemang.
“An attack on her personality is an attack on all women. In this century we also believe that the NPP’S press conference in response to the choice of running mate by the flagbearer was in a bad faith, gross disrespect, and an insult to women.
“We hereby give the NPP and its leaders a 48-hour ultimatum to withdraw and retract the gibberish they spewed on the personality and credibility of Prof. Naana. Failure to do so will mean that the NPP is a party that do not recognize women”, Theresa Gbekie, the Executive Director of Gratia Women of Substance Network demanded.
Reacting to this, Mr Gambila said Naana Agyemang should quit if she can’t stand the hazards of a political job.
He wrote on facebook, “if she can’t stand de hazards of political job, then she shud quit. Ahh Gratia women part of 44.4% U can’t stand political language attacks? Then don’t waste our time.
