The Women’s Wing of the National Democratic Congress has praised the selection of former Education Minister, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as John Mahama’s running mate.
In a message to congratulate her, the women’s group assured her of their “fullest support” to deliver victory for John Mahama in the coming general elections.
“We are excited, that His Excellency chose to amplify Women Participation in political leadership, Governance and development by selecting Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang,” a statement by Dr. Hannah Louisa Bisiw, National Women’s Organizer of the NDC, said.
The statement described Prof. Opoku-Agyemang as an accomplished scholar who led a number of transformative initiatives when she was the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast.
“She is an honest, God-fearing, incorruptible achiever and a role model for all.”
The NDC women’s wing saw her nomination as a feather in the cap of women, having occupied high positions in governance such as the Attorney General, Chief of Staff, Speaker of Parliament and Chief Justice.
“The long awaited History is Pregnant and about to be delivered on December 7th. Whilst we congratulate Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyeman on her nomination, we urge all women in Ghana, women activists and women groups to openly and publicly support this dream of taking women amplification a notch higher!!”
