Former Communications Minister, Edward Omane Boamah, has called for mental examination of all persons seeking to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) ahead of the 2020 elections.
Mr. Omane Boamah’s comment was a direct response to NDC Presidential aspirant, Alban Bagbin’s suggestion that his fellow aspirants be subjected to compulsory HIV test.
“…We have to include it as part of the qualification of a Member of Parliament; that before you go to stand an election, you go for an HIV test, and so should it be for all presidential aspirants,” Mr. Bagbin said in Parliament when he was making a statement to mark World AIDS Day.
“Hon. Bagbin, on compulsory HIV test, why not add mental state examination too?” Omane Boamah responded via his Facebook page Monday.
