The elected running mate for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang has charged head potters popularly known as ‘Kayaye’ not to allow themselves to be disrespected by people no matter what.
This following jabs from the NPP General Secretary, John Boadu, after her nomination.
According to Mr Boadu, only these head potters will recognize her(Prof. Naana) in public if she decides to take a tour in Accra.
This assertion was to indicate that the NDC running mate was unpopular and not recognizable among Ghanaians.
Speaking during a visit by the minority women caucus in parliament to congratulate her after her nomination, the former UCC VC asked the Kayayes who were present to protect 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 disrespect you.
Without you, our society will not be what it is, she argued.
“Believe that whatever you are doing in whatever category it is, it is as important as any level, so be confident in yourself. If you didn’t get there, let your children be there.” She urged them.
