The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has outdoor Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, the running mate of its flagbearer John Dramani Mahama.

Speaking at her outdooring ceremony at the UPSA auditorium on April 24, 2024, she promised to give her all in assisting Mahama put the country back on track.

Among the issues raised in her address, she indicated that an NDC administration will persecute anyone who participated “in the plunder of the state”

“This is not a threat; it is a promise, premised on the wishes of our citizens across the various political and social divides, and hinged on the principle of accountability”.

She further mocked the NPP saying: “I envisage a report of the administration of HE John Dramani Mahama on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress which justifies his return. The report would have no reference to the following:

  1. A multi-million-dollar dugout; I don’t know about you but the image I get looking at the trench is that of a hole in utter shock that anyone could believe it was intended as a thanksgiving gift to the Almighty, Invisible, God Only Wise.
  2. A free SHS at war, with the battle fought on the grounds of food, shelter, space, calendar, teaching and learning materials, or those who spend a couple of weeks at school and several months idling at home; past questions instead of textbooks and science equipment, or an atmosphere that suppresses learning.
  3. Free water and electricity to a few that turns out to be most expensive for all.

Such a report would not find:

  1. Covid money shared for partisan political campaign purposes, while people die from a lack of support at our health facilities.
  2. An Agyapa-like manifesto under the NDC led by JDM.

It would not include:

  1. A president clearing malfeasance and writing love letters to prejudge a bad situation

It would not find:

  1. Unemployment that has jumped from 8 to 14% (check out the actual numbers), a GDP that has gone AWOL or a cedi that refuses to be tamed. Or,
  2. Weak efforts to hide the truth of dumsor.

The report would not include:

  1. Scandals surrounding the PDS; Australian Visas; Kelni GVG; Bost Contaminated Fuel; excavators and aboboyaa tricycles that can fly swifter than nkonfem; or the loss of some GHS 60.8 at a central bank, or
  2. Unfulfilled promises of one village one dam; one million dollars per constituency per year; 350 secondary schools from scratch and too, too many betrayals.

It would not see:

  1. A tracker in hiding, too embarrassed to expose its plagiarized content.
  2. In truth, such an investigation would not reveal over 100 scandals, and counting, during the tenure of the NDC under JDM.”
