Concerned Trainee Teachers And Nurses Worried Over Nomination Of Professor Naana Opoku Agyemang As Vice Presidential Candidate

A group calling itself Concerned Trainee Teachers and Nurses has expressed their fear about the nomination of Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang as the Vice Presidential Candidate of the NDC for the December elections.

This was contained in a press release signed by Rebecca Owusu, a Nurse and Portia Boateng, at teacher.

“We the Concerned Teacher and Trainee Nurses in the country have received the selection of Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, former Minister of Education, as the running mate to Mr. John Dramani Mahama, with lots of fear and trepidation. Our fear is premised on the fact that under the reign of Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang as the Minister of Education under the erstwhile administration of the NDC, teacher and trainee nurses in the country went through several ordeals following the cancellation of trainee allowances.”

They also stated that, “We have no doubt that the decision by the then President and now Candidate John Dramani Mahama to cancel these allowances, which was a major source of reprieve for us trainees, was based on advice from Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang.”

The group further commended the Nana Akufo-Addo led government to restore the allowances.

“As every Ghanaian is aware, it took the intervention of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and his able Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, to restore these much needed allowances for us as students. With her selection as the running mate to Mr. Mahama, we have no doubt that she will pursue her agenda once again, in the unlikely event that the NDC wins December 2020 elections.”
