National Democratic Congress General Secretary Asiedu Nketia has disclosed that he wouldn’t have turned down an offer to be Mahama’s running mate in this year’s general elections. He added that he had expressed interest but the party sort to look for a more capable candidate.
Nketia added that NDC has the utmost respect for women and that is why they settled on Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman who is capable of leading the country in absence of the president. He added that Naana was accepted unanimously by NDC when her name was fronted by Mahama.
Asiedu Nketia went ahead to tell people to stop comparing Veep Bawumia. According to the Secretary-General: “I find it very laughable when people want to compare Veep Bawumia to Prof. Jane Opoku-Agyemang. The fact is Veep Bawumia is not a standard for Jane. The National Democratic Congress as a party believes the appointment of Prof. Jane is in the right order and will ensure our victory comes 2020.”
