Seasoned journalist, Blessed Godsbrain, popularly known as Captain Smart has called the bluff of male politicians in the country who are bent on looking down on female politicians who want to make an impact in the political sphere.
His comment comes on the backdrop of recent allegations leveled against Prof Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang who was appointed by the Flag Bearer of the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), with some calling her all sorts of names and painting her black to Ghanaians in a bid to tarnish her hard-earned reputation.
One of such persons tarnishing the image of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast is Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Chairman Wontumi.
Chairman Wontumi is reported to have made some disparaging comments about the running mate of John Dramani Mahama.
“Just look at her face…take many pictures of her. When you take many pictures of her and examine her thoroughly from hair to toe, you examine what she wears on her body and her hairdo, you will realize that the lady herself is disappointed in herself, the family and Ghanaians and the women as well. Just examine her well,” he stated.
Reacting to such comments from the owner of Kumasi-Based Wontumi group of companies, Captain Smart said it is sad that Ghanaian men resort to insults when they are dealing with women rather than speak to the issues. He indicated that the culture of insults in the country’s body politics is appalling and should, therefore, be a rethink of the way politics is done in the country.
To him, “all Ghanaian male politicians are good at is stealing public funds and sleeping with young ladies” and such do not have any good thing to offer the country than to insult.
