The 2020 Vice Presidential Candidate of the NDC, Prof Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman has advocated for the closure of all witches camps in the country.
The practice, according to Prof Naana Opoku Agyeman, is not only outmoded but also a dent on the conscience of all Ghanaians.
“As a woman I feel their pain and worry and therefore plead with the government to come to the aid of these women. Together let us disband this camp and move them back home to join their families.
This practice has become an indictment on the conscience of our society.” she told journalists on Wednesday, after presenting assorted items to alleged witches at Leli Dabari in the Gushegu Municipality of the Northern Region.
The 2020 NDC Vice Presidential candidate who was accompanied accompanied by the party’s Northern Regional and Gushegu constituency executives, presented bags of rice, maize, gallons of cooking oil, and an undisclosed sum to the alleged witches.
Interacting with the women on Wednesday, the 2020 Vice Presidential Candidate of the NDC also expressed concern about the living conditions of the women accused of witchcraft, calling them “unacceptable.”
Speaking on behalf of the women, Mr. Mohammed Tamanja thanked the Professor and her entourage for the support, stating that she is without a doubt the next vice president of the republic.
“We are extremely grateful for your visit and the items you have donated to us; by God’s grace, you will be the next Vice President of Ghana” Mr. Mohammed prays.
