Former president and current NDC presidential candidate has settled on former education minister Prof. Jane Naana Opuku-Agyemang as his running mate for the 2020 elections.
Mahama announced on Twitter stating that: “The @OfficialNDCGh, this afternoon, unanimously, endorsed my nomination of Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as my Running Mate for the December 2020 election. She is God-fearing, a distinguished scholar, a conscientious public servant & a role model.”
This nomination surprised many since most people expected former finance minister Dr. Kwabena Duffuor to be nominated. Most of the NDC grassroots supporters wanted the former finance minister to work with Mahama.
Should NDC win the December polls Naana will become the country’s first female vice president.
