“We’re Talking Governance of The Nation . . . Not Just Talking About Managing A University” – Baako On Prof Opoku-Agyemang
The Editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Kweku Baako Jnr. has described the comparisons of the Vice President and John Mahama’s running mate, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as a mismatch.
Kweku Baako said Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has gathered more experience over the years as he repeatedly competed as Akufo-Addo’s running mate compared to his opponent.
“Progressively, he developed some qualities and capabilities but Madam Jane Opoku-Agyemang is at the early stage. At this stage if you are comparing all the two, it is a mismatch,” he stated.
“I’ve even conceded that in terms of academia, I think she’s really solid and I don’t see much of emphasis there unless people go digging but for what? She’s clearly an established professional when it comes to academia and education . . .” says veteran journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako.
Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) recently outdoored Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as his running mate.
Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang was once a Minister of Education under the erstwhile Mahama administration.
She was also the first female Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the University of Cape Coast (UCC).
The ruling New Patriotic Party is already having a field day; criticizing her performance as a Minister of Education.
Speaking on Joy News’ Newsfile Saturday, Kweku Baako said in terms of academia, he doesn’t see any real challenge.
“We’re talking governance of the nation, we’re not just talking about managing a university, however important and big it is. Her performance in government as Education Minister is something you can’t ignore or underestimate. I’ve even conceded that in terms of academia, I think she’s really solid and I don’t see much of emphasis there unless people go digging . . . but when it comes to her as a Minister of Education; I’m saying people will scrutinize it,” Kweku Baako said.
