Dr Amoako Baah who spoke to Class FM after the parliamentary primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) stated that Dzokoto’s popularity made him win the seat.

He also advised that the renowned comedian should not go to Parliament and joke.

“Some of the winners are just a bit worrying you know…when you have someone like Dzokoto, I mean what did he campaign on, ‘Edziban’ or something? I don’t understand it.”

“It becomes almost like a popularity contest because the candidates don’t actually debate each other for the voters to actually see what they are leaned towards….which is not good, and, so, in the end it becomes a popularity contest and Dzokoto is well-known, Edziban, and I’m sure it has a lot to do with why he won.

“I mean look, once you are a comedian, always a comedian. And you go to Parliament and people will see you from that perspective. You start saying something…important and they start laughing [at you] and it’s not a laughing matter in Parliament.

“I’m not saying ‘Edziban’ will not do well…I want him to educate himself and go and do the work he has submitted himself to do, not to go over there and engage in jokes or something,” Dr Amoako-Baah noted.

Reacting to the remarks on Happy FM, Mr Dzokoto said the comment by the lecturer was an insult to his profession and personality.

“I’m very disappointed in what the Dr said because he is a scientist and is expected to speak based on a research report. You should speak with a lot of facts. I don’t know if he has heard I joked with my responsibilities… so I was surprised for such comments because he is grown, he is a lecturer and a scientist. His comments shocked me because he portrayed me as someone who doesn’t know his left from right. It is an insult to my personality and profession. Some prominent people should advise him on what to say,” Dzokoto said.
