Opoku-Agyemang Has Been A Decent Politician So Far, Very Refreshing - Agyin Asare

The vice-presidential candidate of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, has been a decent politician so far, Bishop Charles Agyinasare has observed.

Officially welcoming the former Minister of Education to Perez Chapel International on Sunday, 15 November 2020 service at the Perez Dome, Dzorwulu, the Presiding Bishop said: "Even before she became running mate to the NDC's flag bearer, I had had some interesting interactions with her by virtue of my serving on various educational councils, including that of Perez University College".

"In fact, with the exception of one, all the rectors we have had at the Perez University College have come from the University of Cape Coast, of which she was once a Vice-Chancellor".

"One of our senior pastors, who also lectures at Cape-Vars, worked with her in the same department", Bishop Agyinasare, who is the Chancellor of Perez University College, told the congregation.

Directly addressing the vice-presidential candidate, Bishop Agyinasare said: "Prof, I have followed you briefly from the time you were chosen as the running mate of the NDC and how you have conducted yourself and your campaign. "I have not heard you or read reports of you using insulting or abusive language on your political opponents, and this is worthy of commendation".

"Thank you for that exemplary conduct. Being a Christian and a member of the Methodist Church, the conduct you have exhibited is very refreshing, so do keep it up".

He added: "Let me say that, as a man of God, just as I've commended you for what I see you doing well, the day you or your political party-whether while in opposition or while in government-fail to do what is right, expect that I will likewise speak out and not be silent. I hope that if it happens "attack dogs" from your party will not be unleashed against me! Of course, in the unlikely event that it does happen, I will not be silenced".

Bishop Agyinasare also used the occasion to commiserate with the family of the late former President Jerry John Rawlings who died on Thursday, 12 November 2020.

He described Mr Rawlings as a man who loved his nation dearly, adding that Ghana has lost a "great icon". Additionally, he urged the two biggest political parties, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the main opposition NDC, to give Ghanaians a peaceful 7 December 2020 polls.
