Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Dramani Mahama seems to have completed his search for his running mate in this year’s Presidential elections.
Leader of the largest opposition NDC, Thursday night told Ghanaians that the world is in the midst of a worst pandemic and that makes it difficult to get on the radar and outdoor his running mate.
In a second edition of his Live digital conversation, Mr Mahama said:”I have a firm idea who I want my running mate to be and we’ll name him at the appropriate time.”
He added that his team is within schedule to put out the name of who he’ll be working closely in the Flagstaff House as his Vice President should he get the nod in the upcoming elections.
Mr Mahama in recent times has been asked who will share his ticket in this year’s polls.
But he puts it more bluntly in response to speculations that he’s most likely to be sweating in the selection of a candidate to partner him, saying he’s on track and not behind time.
Dr Kwabena Duffuor, who is former Minister of Finance in the late Mills’ administration and former Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG), former Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho; former Finance Minister, Prof. Kwesi Botchwey; former Agric Minister, Kwesi Ahwoi are often floated as possible picks.
Mr Mahama, has however indicated that the search is over and after consultations with the National Executive Committee and the Council of Elders he’ll name his running mate shortly.
He added:”a person who’ll be worthy of being the NDC’s running mate and who will make a significant contribution to the progress and prosperity of this country: I can assure you”
