The Deputy Minister of Energy and MP for Afigya Kwabre South Hon. William Owuraku-Aidoo in an interview Daily News Ghana monitored has said that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is not scared of Former President’s running mate Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Pure FM Owuraku-Aidoo said if she [Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang] was that good, the NDC would have used her as their presidential candidate to redeem the credibility deficit of the party.
“…in the first place, we will congratulate her on her nomination to partner John Mahama but as I say always, the value is the same. It is not Auntie Naana whose image will be on the ballot sheet on December 7. It is John Mahama’s image that will be there as this is the first time an immediate former president and a sitting president will be in a challenge,” he stated.
He added that “She does not scare us at all. If the candidate being brought is incompetent, the running mate will make very little difference. Her nomination can’t change anything because the ultimate decisions of the country are made by the President so if she was that good, why didn’t they use her as their flagbearer?
