The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has maintained Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as his running mate for the 2024 Presidential election.

The former Education Minister, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang, partnered former President John Dramani Mahama, in the 2020 election.

Apart from Prof. Opoku-Agyemang, whose name appeared to be the favourite candidate for the running mate position, names including 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 were rumoured to be part of Mr Mahama’s options.

The NDC’s leader officially submitted his nomination for running mate to the party’s Council of Elders on February 27, 2024.

A statement issued and signed by the party’s General Secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey, explained that the nomination process was carried out in accordance with 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.

Additionally, the National Executive Committee will convene at 3 pm on the same day to further discuss the nomination.

He assured that additional details regarding the meetings would be promptly communicated to all concerned parties.
