Former running mate of Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, then flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Brigitte Dzogbenuku has said that she will not vote for the National Democratic Congress despite having a woman, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as the running mate of the John Dramani Mahama.

Many have commended the NDC and John Dramani Mahama for making what they describe as a bold statement for women empowerment for appointing Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as running mate going into the 2020 general elections.

Though many are of the view that the move will get a lot of women and gender activists to rally behind the NDC to capture power from the NPP in December, one-time running mate for the PPP, Brigitte Dzogbenuku who as a woman, is considered a woman and should be at all cost support Prof. Opoku-Agyemang by voting the NDC, says under no circumstances would she do just because the NDC filed female running mate.

“I have voted for the NDC before but I won’t do it again, no doubt about that,” she told ABC News in an interview.

She noted that, former President John Mahama remains the flagbearer of the NDC and his track record still lingers in her mind.

“We don’t vote for vice presidential candidates, we vote for presidential candidates, and for now the presidential candidate is the one I knew, John Mahama from 2016 so it still remains that the NDC as I see it today is still the NDC I knew. I won’t vote for him,” she added.

Be that as it may, madam Dzorgebenuku expressed her admiration for Prof. Opoku-Agyemang, saying that “she actually taught me in Wesley Girls…I was quite happy to hear that she was the one named as the running mate because she was the only woman being considered so emerging to be the chosen one, I was quite elated,” she said

Brigette Dzorgbenuku said she expects Prof. Opoku-Agyemang to make a difference in the NDC and not just succumb to the dictates of the party.

  1. Who is Bridgette Dzorgbenuku? What wrong has JM committed against her for which she thinks she should not vote merely for NDC because of Prof. Jane Nana Adgeman? It think her comments emanates from skin – pain, it’s jealousy.

    The fact that she could not bring any significant change in the fortunes of Dr Paa Kwesi Ndoum at the polls is not lost on Ghanaians.

    To be able to attract Ewe votes sufficiently, Ghana Most Beautiful crown alone is not enough. Even Ve – Koloenu citizens know this. She would be committing a big mistake by comparing herself with the learned Professor.

    As a gender activist she ought to have seized this opportunity to make a definite state in support of one of their own trying to annex one of the highest office of the land.

    Bridgette must rescind her decision and join the crusade to make sure the Elephants are driven back to the bush where they belong.

    It is in her interest for Dr Paa Kwesi to reclaim his Bank.
