Prof Opoku-Agyemang cautions political leaders


The economic hardship in the country today behoves political leaders to be careful of how they speak and what comes out of their mouths, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, running mate of former President John Dramani Mahama for the 2024 Presidential elections has cautioned.

She said the cost of living in the country is so high that the situation calls for comforting words and language from leaders which could assuage the citizens and also bring about unity among the populace. ‘The times we are in now do not warrant arrogance and show of power’, she emphasized.

She commended the people of Elmina and its surrounding areas for living in peace and harmony over the years and presented an undisclosed amount of money to the Chiefs and people from the former President.

Prof. Opoku-Agyemang, the Vice Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), said this  at the Bakatue festival of the people of Elmina Traditional Area last Saturday on behalf of  John Dramani Mahama who could not honor the invitation to be at the festival due to unforeseen circumstances.

She disclosed that even though she was representing former President John Mahama, she was also there on her own right as a citizen of the area.

The Chief Executive of the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abirem (KEEA) Municipal Assembly, Solomon Ebow Appiah, on behalf of Dr  Mahamdu Bawumia, the Vice President and Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the December elections extolled the cordial relationship between the Elmina traditional Council and the current administration.

He called on the people to exercise patience under the current economic circumstance as the government strives to put in place measures to relieve the pressure.

The Omanhen of the Edina Traditional Area, Nana Kodwo Condua V1, on behalf of the people and Chiefs of his Traditional area, expressed appreciation to both the NDC Running, Prof.  Opoku-Agyemang  and Mr. Solomom Appiah, the MCE for their  presence at the festival and their words of encouragement to the people.

He was to happy mention that under his administration, the Traditional Council has put up a modern befitting Palace for the Council, a development which he said, was the first in the history of the Council.
