Deputy Health Minister, former parliamentary candidate ‘clash’ over juju

A failed New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate in the 2016 elections in the Weija-Gbawe constituency of the Greater Accra region, Mr Isaac Yamoah clashed with the Deputy Minister of Health, Tina Naa Ayeley Mensah after he alleged the latter used ‘Juju’ on him.

He disclosed on Kumasi-based Bohye Fm hosted by Agya Yaw Obeng that the Minister engages in voodoo or ‘black powers’ on anyone who is not on her side, politically indicating that he has become a victim of such acts.

“Tina Mensah is running on voodoo to get whatever she wants in politics but I am not afraid of her because very soon her end will come”, he promised

Mr. Yamoah claimed because of the juju of Deputy Minister of Health, things are not getting better for him, and at a point had to confront Madam Tina Mensah about the issue.

According to him, the intention of the Deputy Minister of Health is to render him helpless over fears that he could contest her again at the next parliamentary primaries.

A livid Yamoah further claimed the Minister is under a covert operation to paint him black at the Presidency, an act he claims has not landed him a job since the party took over power but served notice that all her schemes will fall flat on the face.

“Somebody at the Jubilee House openly told me that there is no way I will get the appointment I was looking for and that the person ensuring that I am denied the job boasted she will make sure that I do not get an appointment from the president,” he said.

But Madam Tina Mensah on the same platform denied the claims made against her indicating that her accuser is mentally unstable and that she will not be distracted by such baseless accusations.

According to her, during the primaries, she beat the incumbent Rosemond Comfort Abrah but she never accused her of such but wondering why Yamoah who placed last is making such unsubstantiated allegations.

“The first time I met him in 2015 at the primaries I realized he was not normal. I have contested elections several times and lost since 1992 and I am known to everyone. Tina Mensah will never engage in Juju. At the election grounds, he was being pursued for debts owed. He is not my target in the constituency because I am naturally gifted and won’t engage in voodoo. He should think through his conduct which may be his reason for his state, not me”, she stated.
