Stan Xoese Dogbe, a leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has praised Joyce Bawa Mogtari for joining her husband’s campaign in Wa Central. In a Facebook post, Mr Dogbe expressed his admiration for Mrs Mogtari and stated that there was nothing wrong with a wife supporting her husband’s bid to lead his people.
According to Mr Dogbe, the four-day campaign by Mrs Mogtari in the constituency has shaken some individuals who have now resorted to attacks. He added that the impact of her campaign was what was shaking her opponents.
Mr Dogbe also criticized those who had questioned Mrs Mogtari’s decision to support her husband’s campaign, asking why it was an issue when other wives were also campaigning for their husbands. He questioned why her joining her husband was now an issue when her detractors had previously subjected her to verbal and culturally-insensitive attacks.
For the most part, Mr Dogbe’s post was a show of support for Mrs Mogtari and her husband. He acknowledged that spouses should complement each other, and that is what Mrs Mogtari had done beautifully. He also criticized the politically-sponsored news stories and articles that had been circulating about Mrs Mogtari’s decision.
The post by Mr Dogbe highlights the importance of family support in politics. It is not uncommon for spouses to support each other’s political aspirations, and it is essential to recognize and respect their choices. In a nutshell, Mrs Mogtari’s decision to support her husband’s campaign is admirable, and it should be commended rather than criticized.
