The flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has again picked Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as his running mate for the 2024 presidential election.

His choice to retain the former Education Minister according to party gurus is because the professor has already been marketed in the 2020 presidential election and is likely to set a record as Ghana's first female to occupy the second-highest position in the country if the NDC wins the December 7 polls.

Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang Profile

Regarded as a woman of integrity, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang, the second female running mate of the two leading political parties in the country, has been associated with the NDC as far back as 1996 when she hosted the popular Radio Gold programme, 'Platform'.

She interviewed then-President, Jerry John Rawlings, in the build-up to the 1996 presidential election.

She also co-hosted the 2012 Institute of Economic Affairs-sponsored presidential debates.

Moreover, since the party lost the 2020 presidential election, she has been on the ground not only campaigning for the NDC but also undertaking charitable activities to support needy people across the country.

Prof. Opoku-Agyemang’s chances appeared to have been boosted when the special aide to the flag bearer of the NDC, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, advocated the re-selection of a female running mate for her boss in the 2024 polls.

Bawumia and his running mate

However, the New Patriotic Party's flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is yet to choose a running for the crucial December 7 presidential election.

But many believed he would also settle on a former Education Minister and the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Manhyia South constituency in the Ashanti Region, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh.

Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh stands tall among other names suggested to partner with Dr Bawumia in the December 7 polls.
