The nomination and subsequent confirmation of Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang was hailed by many gender activist as a positive omen for our country. While some saw it as a political strategy just to win votes, others also felt that, it has demonstrated and showcased Ghana as a country that has chalked a lot of success in gender mainstreaming.

Indeed, both local and international civil societies organisations released press statements in applause of her nomination and subsequent confirmation.

Those who were up in arms about that decision to nominate her as vice presidential candidate of the NDC; were of the view that, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang would be able to champion the course of women when given the opportunity as Vice president of our great country.

The above notwithstanding, the outspoken NPP member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has rubbished this position. He claimed that, “When Prophet Nigel Gaisie raped Mzbel, it was Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang who went to plead with Mzbel not to take action against the Prophet”.

According to Mr. Agyapong, is that how someone who would fight for women’s right must behave he quizzed. He continued that, “for nothing at all, if a lady has been raped it ought to have been the interest of Prof. Naana Jane to rather assist Mzbel to action against prophet Nigel and not to plead for the prophet”. “Those who think she is going to champion the course of women should know that, she wouldn’t and this is her record” he claimed.

The Assin Central member of Parliament was speaking to Kwaku Annan of Net2tv today Monday, 10th August, 2020.

Explaining how he came by this information, Mr. Agyapong said the matter was already in the public domain. “Initially Mzbel agreed to speak to Net2tv but was prevailed upon by the NDC to stop”. When I called her, she was not picking my calls but now she has spoken”.

He ended by saying that, the issues have overwhelmed Mzbel to the extent she is now spilling the beans in the open. According to him, Prophet Nigel Gaisie has slept with a lot of women including celebrities and those who are married.
