A Leading member of the University of Ghana Political Science Department, which recently conducted research on the 2020 election of Ghana, Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah has been exposed on live television by his former student, for allegedly being a card bearing member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah was on the Good Evening Ghana political program on Metro Television to provide further explanation on their research, which projected Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo as the winner of the 2020 election.
Host of the program Paul Adom Otchere in an open forum segment of the program, called for questions from other participants in the studio, to Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah.
It was during the time that the National Deputy Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Edem Agbana who is also a former student of Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah grabbed the microphone to bombard him with questions.
According to Mr. Edem Agbena, he is very much aware that Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah is a card bearing member of the NPP.
He further alleged that Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah who led the polls has been spotted severally at rallies of the New Patriotic Party.
Mr. Edem Agbana expressed his dissatisfaction about the polls and dared Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah to deny the allegations.
“Yes, indeed Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah thought me research methodology at the University of Ghana political science department. For me as a political activist who knows him personally, I can say that if you come out with a survey, the messenger is equally important as the message.
Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah, I know for a fact is a card bearing member of the NPP, and I have a video where he was with Gabby Asare Otchere Darko on a campaign for the NPP in Yendi”. Edem Agbana alleged.
Mr. Edem Agbena further alleged that the research was not sanctioned by the University of Ghana. According to him, Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah only conducted the research to please his political party.
“Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah know for a fact that the research we are discussing is not officially coming from the University and he knows that some lectures have protested the survey.
He cannot deny what I’m saying here. They manipulated the data to favor the NPP. He is not credible to lead that research. He is only interested in Akufo Addo’s re-election”. Mr. Edem Agbenu added.
On his part, Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah refused to comment on the party card allegations. However, he indicated that the research was sanctioned by the entire academic head of the University.
“Edem Agbanu is engaging in genetic fallacy. The academic unit heads sanctioned the research. Edem Agbanu is listening to NDC lecturers in the University but all I will tell him is to learn well and it will help him”. Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah noted.
