The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has indicated his readiness to serve as the NDC’s running mate in the upcoming 2020 elections.
According to him, though he is the General Secretary of the party, he is equally capable of taking up any position including that of Vice President when asked.
Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ programme, he explained that he has been on the floor in the various regions meeting party members for their upcoming primaries and their policies as a party going into 2020 elections.
“I have not heard about the campaign for my running mate slot on social media,” he said.
The NDC, according to party insiders, should be able to come up with a running mate who could match up squarely to the sitting Vice President when it comes to economic issues. That situation threw up a recommendation in the person of Alex Mould, former GNPC CEO, our sources tell us.
Other notable names on the radar which the NDC bigwigs say could be given the opportunity should General Mosquito be pushed aside include former Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast and former Education Minister under Mahama’s administration, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, Ambassador Victor Smith and Sylvester Adinam Mensah.
However, the main contenders for the slot as of this publication, our sources reveal, are Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman.
