Election 2020: John Mahama PICKS running mate

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has selected a running mate for the 2020 elections.

The former President has come under intense criticism for failing to name a running mate since his election as the flagbearer of the main opposition party some two years ago.

Information gathered by GhanaNewsPage.Com indicate that the former President settled on an Akan.

The reason, this paper gathered is due to the belief that an Akan, particularly someone from the Ashanti Region will help the party gain more votes in the Akan dominated areas.

Ace broadcaster, Paul Adom-Otchere opined same when he run an editorial on the running mate issue in the NDC.

“We suspect that if J.J Rawlings is thinking about a running mate for John Mahama, giving that John Mahama comes from the North and he’s thinking about a running mate from the south, we think JJ will point him…directly to the Ashanti Region,” he said on his TV show Good Evening Ghana,” he said.
