A key member of the communications team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Francis Anom Boateng has rebuked the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Chairman Wontumi over some appalling comments he made about NDC running mate, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang.
Speaking on Happy FM’s ’Epa Hoa Daben’ show, Mr Boateng said “there is no sense in what Wontumi said about the woman. If the person is qualified but she is in NDC and can do the work, what are you going to do with her looks? It is time we tell our people. I don’t like some of these comments.”
He added, “Wontumi should know that she has family members who may belong to the NPP. And then you come out to condemn her looks? Must we use the appearance of people in politics?
If for example, she has a good intent to give all Ghanaians say, 1000 dollars one day, do you think your comments will compel her to do so?”
He urged political opponents to criticise Naana Agyemang based on her capabilities and what she brings to the table.
“Looking at her demeanour, you can tell she is a good woman at home; a good wife. I don’t know how you can falter that woman. But can you say that she can be a very good vice president? That is what we are talking about. The academic achievements do not translate into economic emancipation,” he said.
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, popularly known as Chairman Wontumi criticised former president John Mahama’s running mate, ridiculing her looks and branding her as a disappointment.
