Prof. Opoku-Agyemang showed hatred for women by advocating for release of Montie 3 – NPP

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) says Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang showed hatred for women when she advocated for the release of Montie 3.

The NPP organized a press conference today July 6, 2020 shortly after the NDC announced Prof. Opoku Agyemang as their running mate.

Speaking at the presser, Communications Director for the party Buaben Asamoa said Prof Opoku-Agyemang signed a petition to have the Montie 3 released when they were found guilty of scandalising the court, defying and lowering its authority and bringing its name into disrepute.

They threatened the lives of judges of the Apex Court, especially those who had heard the case on the credibility of the country’s electoral roll filed by Abu Ramadan and Evans Nimako against the Electoral Commission (EC).

Mr Asamoa said: “When the Montie trio threatened death upon the Supreme Court judges including the then Chief Justice Georgina Wood, the then Education Minister and newly appointed running mate to John Mahama Prof. Naana Opoku-Agyemang who I have told she will receive fire was one of those who joined the campaign for the release of Montie 3. Indeed the anti-feminist posture was too obvious when she appended her signature to the petition to have the trio who had been jailed be freed against sound advice from well-meaning Ghanaians. How can a woman who hates her fellow women to this extent be given such a responsibility now to take care of everybody including her fellow women”.

Montie 3 saga

Saliu Maase aka Mugabe, a radio show host; Ako-Gunn and Allistar Taipei Nelson, two panellists of Montie FM in Accra were sentenced to four months’ imprisonment each by the Supreme Court on July 27, 2016 for scandalising the court.

The two panellists, spurred on by Maase, threatened the lives of judges of the Superior Court, especially those who had heard the case on the credibility of the country’s electoral roll filed by Abu Ramadan and Evans Nimako against the Electoral Commission (EC).

They were found guilty of scandalising the court, defying and lowering its authority and bringing its name into disrepute.

Shortly after the apex court’s decision, a petition was sent to then President Mahama, describing the sentence as “harsh” and urging him to pardon them.

The President, in August 2016, remitted the convicts’ sentences from four months to one month, which they served.
