When It Comes To Women Empowerment, Prof. Naana Has No Track Record – Ursula Owusu



Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has described the running mate of the National Democratic Congress, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as one who does not champion women empowerment.

According to her, the former Education Minister does not have a solid track record for the advancement of women’s rights, women’s protection, and gender equality.

Speaking on Citi TV’s Eyewitness News segment, on September 9, 2020, the Communications Minister said, “Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang does not believe in the gender agenda because when she was minister for education, there were more female teacher trainees than men at the time but her policies allowed teachers to be paid three months salaries for three years work and that affected the majority of women teachers.”

“So, she [Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang] took deliberate actions that harmed the purchasing power of women. She also cancelled the allowance of teacher trainees and several of them had to drop out of their respective programs,” she added.
