The Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful says it is wrong for anyone to say the running mate for John Dramani Mahama Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang represents women.
According to her, while the likes of Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings and her were fighting for women and their place in politics, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang was nowhere to be found.
“Women across the political divide have for years fought tirelessly for women and children’s rights in this country and Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman is not one of them. ‘You can easily mention former First Lady of the Republic, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, and some others in the NDC as shining examples of female politicians who have contributed immensely to the advancement of women empowerment and inclusion in Ghana”, she revealed in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
The Ablekuma West Constituency Member of Parliament(MP) noted that with her [Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang], it would make it very difficult to rally the ‘female Constituency’ to support her bid.
She recalled her contribution to the release of the Montie Three who threatened to rape the Chief Justice, Theordora Georgina Wood and said that gives her up as someone who does not believe in women.
“That eposide is still fresh on the mind of every woman in this struggle. It was no mean a person than Ghana’s first female Chief Justice who had been attacked by the NDC and there was Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman rising in defense of her party youth who had been convicted for their barbaric actions.”
