Prof Jane Opoku-Agyemang has been described as very corrupt and a bribe taker by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party.
The announcement of Jane Opoku-Agyemang as running mate to John Mahama, hasn’t brought any amusement to the public, according to Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako.
The NPP Chairman stated that the corrupt ways of Prof. Opoku-Agyemang is to be blamed. “She is corrupt and a bribe taker”, he said.
Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, in an interview on the Wontumi Morning Show stated that during the IEA Presidential debate in 2012, Jane Opoku-Agyemang as moderator, leaked questions to Mr. Mahama to answer.
The despicable move, according to Mr. Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi has paved way for her to be nominated as running mate.
In describing former President Mahama running mate, Chairmain Wontumi stated that “she is very corrupt. During the Presidential debate she was leaking information and questions to John Mahama”.
He continued that “there was no sense in the answers Mahama was giving during the forum. Jane Opoku-Agyemang is a bribe taker. She was only waiting to be appointed as Education Minister and a running mate”.
In a related development, Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, called on Ghanaians to reject Mr. Mahama and his running mate in 2020.
According to Chairman Wontumi, the “stinky” record would always be played back to Opoku-Agyemang for her to know “Ghanaians don’t have a short memory”.
“Your record stink and we know you are going to record more stinking records. Ghanaians don’t have short memories. It was under you as Minister of Education that the Teacher–Trainee Allowance was cancelled. You record stink and you bring no hope”, Chairman Wontumi said of Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang.
It would be recalled that former president John Mahama gave his full backing to the decision by the Ministry of Education to cancel the payment of the age-old teacher–trainee allowance and replace it with the students’ loan scheme.
Then Minister of Education, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, said the country could not continue to do the same old things in education.
“We need to change to meet current demands,” she said.
She argued that the emphasis was to be placed on the quality of the products from the universities.
