The head of History and Political studies department at KNUST, Dr. Richard Amoako Baah has described the victory of Ms. Francisca Oteng- Mensah, the 22 year old student of KNUST in the recent NPP primaries as very unfortunate.
According to him Francisca Oteng Mensah is too young and inexperienced.
He also mentioned that being a parliamentarian was a full time job and not a part- time and that she could not blend her academics with national politics. He added that the father who supported her in her primaries may become like a shadow MP and will in other words influence her decision making.
However, Dr. Edward Brenyaa political science lecturer at KNUST in an interview with Focus newssays he believes Francisca Oteng Mensah could make a positive impact in Ghana’s politics.
