The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama is likely to pick Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as his running mate for the 2024 presidential election.

Reports say Mr Mahama is very optimistic about winning the 2024 presidential election with the former Education Minister who played a pivotal role in his 2020 bid. 

Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang has been highly tipped by gurus within the NDC as the best pair for Mahama.

Other favourite candidates for the running mate position, names include the former Chief of Staff to President Mahama, Julius Debrah; an economist, Dr Nii Moi Thompson, Member of Parliament for Asunafo, Eric Opoku; and retired Police Commissioner, Nathan Kofi Boakye.

A statement issued and signed by the party’s General Secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, explained that the nomination process was carried out following Article 45 of the NDC Constitution.

Mr. Kwetey further disclosed that a meeting with the party’s Council of Elders is scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 7, 2024, at 11 am to deliberate on the nomination.

Expressing confidence in the chosen running mate, Mr Kwetey stated, “The NDC is confident that the Running Mate will bring a wealth of experience, expertise, and dedication to our campaign.”

He said that the selection of the running mate would align with John Mahama’s vision as they collectively strive to “Build the Ghana We Want together.”
