Regional organiser of the National Democratic Congress in the Upper West region, Hon. Issahaku Nuhu Putiaha has indicated that, the NDC’s running mate select Prof. Naana Jean Opoku Agyemang is more competent and will help the party win the 2020 general elections.
He stated that, the NDC is the first to have landed on a female to serve as a running mate adding that the woman has a lot in her and will be of great benefit to the party and the nation when she becomes the vice president of Ghana with John Dramani Mahama as President. “We believe the woman is competent and will support former president Mahama and the NDC to win the 2020 general elections”.
Hon. Putiaha was quick to have noted that, Prof Naana is the brain behind the NPP well touted Free Senior High school indicating that she started it as progressive Free Senior High School before the NPP took over and continued with it. “She is the brain behind free senior high school, she started it in Ghana, she started it as progressive Free Senior High School before the NPP took over” Putiaha noted.
The former MCE for the Wa Municipal Assembly made this known on Radio Waa’s Yelkaabaahe programme with Abu Bipoli Monday July 6, 2020 when he was speaking on the appointment of Professor Naana Opoku Agyemang as running mate for the NDC’s standard bearer H.E John Dramani Mahama.
Touching on whether the woman will be able to match shoulders with the NPP’s running mate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Putiaha stated that, Prof Naana has a lot of academic credentials and had a lot of experience in Ghanaian politics stressing that, Bawumia will never be an impediment to the success of Prof Naana Jean as running mate of the NDC.
