The leader of the United Front Party (UFP), Akwasi Addai Odike has urged flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama to ditch Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang and go for a different running mate.

According to several reports, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, former Minister of Education will be named the 2024 running mate of John Dramani Mahama this month.

Speaking to Kasapa FM on Tuesday, March 5, Akwasi Addai Odike said the choice of Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang is wrong.

He argued that at age 70, the former Education Minister may suffer dementia which will affect her ability to work properly in the event the NDC wins power and she becomes Vice President to John Dramani Mahama.

“This woman John Mahama is selecting to partner him as running mate for a second time is too old. She is 70 years old, she is in her menopausal stage. When woman are in their menopause it affects how they do their things. Some of them suffer from dementia and become very forgetful. Menopause can even cause a woman to bathe one leg and leave the other when bathing.

“The woman is too old, you are foisting this lady on Ghanaians. Nobody hates her, but in life, there’s an extent to which everyone can perform. She’s done her part and it is time for others to continue,” Akwasi Addai Odike argued.

The politician and businessman continued, “If John Mahama selected her once and they failed to win power, he should dump her and select a more capable person, especially from the Ashanti region. Otherwise, some of us will wage a campaign against the NDC.”

Meanwhile, the National Executive Council of the NDC is scheduled to sit on Thursday, March 7, to consider the persons proposed as running mates by flagbearer John Dramani Mahama.
