New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Ablekuma West constituency, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful says she's against party members actively lobbying to be Dr Mahamudu Bawumia's running mate ahead of the December 7 presidential polls.

According to her, the running mate position should not be lobbied for but rather must be acquired through one's effort.

“Is that a position you lobby or garn for? I am absolutely against any active seeking of any such position." She said.

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, who seems uninterested in the position despite her name popping up among other contenders, said the flagbearer should not be pressured to choose his running mate.

"It is an appointed position, I think the flagbearer should be left and given the space to decide who he thinks can best partner him.” She noted in an interview with Citi FM.

Adding that: “People may speculate my name but I have not told anybody that I am interested in any position. If the flagbearer thinks I can assist him in his wisdom, why not?

“No media person can ever say anywhere that I have contacted him to put my name out there or anybody for that matter. The flagbearer should be given the space to choose who he thinks can best partner him. It will be great if a female is chosen and I made this call eight years ago.”
