Near chaos in Parliament after Majority Leader Afenyo-Markin attacked Prof Naana Jane

Near chaos erupted in Parliament when Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin attacked the personality of John Mahama’s running mate, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang.

According to the legislator, she failed to deliver on her mandate despite occupying key positions in the past government.

He asserts that the NDC flagbearer made a wrong choice for running mate, as they represent the “same old NDC.”

The Majority Leader was contributing to the concluding debate on the State of the Nation Address on March 11.

“It is the same old NDC. It is the same old John Mahama. Mr Speaker, perish the thought, should he even get the opportunity he has only four years constitutionally. There would be no sense of urgency in him because he has nothing to lose. Even if you look at his choice of running mate, he could not get somebody that one could say that they are planning for the future.

“The person is over 70 years, we have no succession plan. From day one, their government will be in crisis. They went to pick the very old person who could not perform at the Education Ministry.

“As I submitted earlier, if you even look at how they paraded their leadership, clearly they have not put in place a visionary leadership for the country’s long-term future.

“The flagbearer, constitutionally has just a term, should that happen, the flagbearer has gone for a running mate, Mr Speaker, under normal circumstance they should have given us a running mate who can give a future to Ghana

“Like we have given a flagbearer who represents the future of Ghana. You have brought a running mate who retired from UCC as VC and came to the Ministry of Education to perform abysmally. The E-blocks she could not complete them. She did only 29. Today, you say the running mate should be the future of this country,” he said.
