John Jinapor an't stand Dr. M. Bawumia's heat
Ever since our Majority Ghanaian beautiful women
appointed Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia the class prefect
as well as planning to appoint him as the running
mate of the NPP flag bearer Nana Addo, some people
in the country have started a war, fighting
against themselves, without any opponent or enemy
"just like wearing a German a military attire, he
begins to match alone without any command, like
attention! forward match, turn left, turn right
and so on."
John Jinapor, Spokesperson for the Vice President,
has dismissed assertions that Dr Mahamudu Bawumia,
a potential running mate to the NPP flagbearer,
Nana Akufo-Addo, better appeals to voters,
especially women than he (Mahama) saying when it
comes to touching base with the people and
political leadership, Dr Bawumia pales in
According to him, though Dr. Bawumia might be an
economic guru, he is politically unproven and the
only election he might have won in his entire life
could perhaps be an election to be a class
prefect. John Jinapor further stated that despite
Dr. Bawumia's financial expertise, Ghana's economy
was nothing good to write home when he was deputy
governor of the Bank of Ghana as compared to the
Veep's role as chairman of the country's Economic
Speaking on Adom FM on Monday, he posited that
comparing the two personalities was like “putting
the cart before the horse” since Dr. Bawumia's
political credentials does not measure up to that
of his boss, besides he added, "the NPP has not
even picked Bawumia as a running mate".
*** That is why I am saying they are fighting
without any opponent or enemy, you see, he is
saying the NPP has not even picked Bawumia as a
running mate! but creating an elephant out of an
My people judge it yourself, "Is it that my own
dog is biting me or what is hapenning"?
John Jinapor, Spokesperson for the Vice President,
responding to a question posed by the host,
Adakabre Frimpong Manso, that some say the
'positive differential' between the Vice President
and Dr. Bawumia is the fact that he (Bawumia)
better appeals to women than Mr. Mahama, the
spokesperson for the Veep stressed out that the
dynamics in Ghana politics have changed and what
matters at the end of the day is results.
*** My brothers why can't we restore "our cool"
and wait for the results he is talking about?
According to the inflated Jinapro, “Elections
isn't about going on a prowl for women…Excuse me
to say…Mr. Mahama is married and living in harmony
with his wife….Let's put aside this talk of appeal
to women stuff and let's focus on who can do the
job well. One can be ugly or pleasant looking, but
what matters at the end of the day, is getting the
job done...It is true that one's personal appeal
or physical structure can attract some votes
but…the dynamics have changed in our elections…We
are not perturbed. Besides, even as at now, the
NPP hasn't picked Bawumia as a running mate…In
2008, clearly we did very well and a scientific
poll indicated that Mr. Mahama didn't only appeal
to women but to the working class, to the youth,
and not only his appearance, his speech resonated
with the youth…He brings something on-board to
augment President Mills both in governance and
also during the polls,” he said.
*** I ask myself if elections is about married men
and women! OR handsome men and beautiful women! I
opine strongly Jinapor is psychologically
embracing some inferiority complex somewhere and
somehow. We want to vote for president and his
vice president and not Mr. or Miss Ghana. Of
course a president and his vice who will care for
the Ghanaian people and those can come from any
responsible members of any political party in the
country irrespective of their personal
appearances. We need Ghanaian politicians who can
PRESIDE over Ghanaians but not those who will
"RESIDE" at the office.
He, Jinapor further added that Mr. Dramani
Mahama's appeal to voters cuts across the entire
nation and not circumscribed to only one region,
and maintained that “leadership is not just about
*** This is another rubbish! yes of course
leadership is about a qualified person, "you can't
make a land ploughing horse a race horse."
“John Mahama's strength is one, experience. He has
the political experience….sorry to say this but
Bawumia has never won any election as far as I
know, maybe as a class prefect or some other post…
But when we talk of politics, when we talk of
experience, when we talk of touching base with the
people, John Mahama is by far ahead of Bawumia.
Secondly, leadership is not just about
qualification. When we talk of leadership…you must
have a certain knowledge across the table..,” John
*** I think Jinapor is the type who "use to pray
NOT in the name of Jesus." It is just like posting
a letter without a postal stamp, it will never
reach the recipient and such prayers too from
people like John Jinapor which are not done
through Jesus Christ may never reach the
Omnipotent Almighty God.
My personal believe is "Tall or short", "reaching
people or touching people", "a class prefect or a
school prefect", "all-die-be die or I will show
you where power lies", all what the Ghanaian
people need is a caring PRESIDENT and VICE
PRESIDENT, period!!! The Ghanaian people are going
to mandate their choice through their own votes
and not that of Jinapor or "Jinabu" or wahtever.
Voting a president or a vice president is not
about just marketing some people with empty talks.
That was YESTERDAY!
"Let us show maturity in politics and discard the
idea of always trying to spraying gas in a burning
fire." Ghanaians have felt enough dust in their
eyes and it's now time for recuperation.
