Running mate to former President John Mahama for the December 7 elections, Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang has charged head porters popularly known as kayayei never to allow people to disrespect them.

According to her, without their contribution and efforts to the nation-building, “society will not be what it is.”

Prof. Opoku-Agyemang’s comments follow claims by General Secretary of the governing NPP, John Boadu that the NPP is not worried about her choice as running mate due to her unpopularity in the country.

Mr Boadu is alleged to have added that only head porters will recognize her in public if she decided to publicly walk through some principal streets of Accra.

Reacting to the assertions during a visit by the Minority Women Caucus to congratulate her following her nomination and approval as running mate, Prof Opoku-Agyemnang urged some kayayei who were present at the event to always stand for their dignity.

“I want you to know that your name is not Kayayei, you have proper names, you deserve the respect like anybody else, don’t let anybody to disrespect you. Without you, our society will not be what it is.”

“Believe that whatever you are doing in whatever category it is as important as any level, so be confident in yourself. If you didn’t get there, let your children be there,” the former UCC Vice-Chancellor said.
