General secretary of the New Democratic Congress NDC Johnson Asiedu Nketsiah has stated that he was very much ready to serve as the running mate of John Mahama.
According to him, he was ready to say yes and help the flagbearer for the NDC to win the 2020 election with ease had he been chosen as the running mate.
Speaking on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia program, Johnson Asiedu stated that tho he was not chosen he is very happy to know that the opportunity was given to a female to also become the vice president if NDC wins.
The running mate for Mahama is said to have been the past vice-chancellor of a prestigious university and did a very good job during her tenure.
“So there was a unanimous decision in accepting her when her name was proposed by flagbearer John Dramani Mahama at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting yesterday (Monday).
“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 come 2020,” he added.
