The National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, says the best choice for the sustenance of Ghana’s future is John Dramani Mahama and his running mate, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang.
For him, the two are the candidates to rescue Ghana from the hands of the current administration.
“The NDC party is optimistic that the John and Jane ticket is a winning pair of hands,” he said at a ceremony to unveil Prof Opoku-Agyemang on Monday, July 27.
“The safest pair of hands that we can entrust the future of this country to. The rescue mission continues and we shall not waiver until victory becomes ours.”
The ceremony took place at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).
Though the social distance protocol in preventing the spread of Covid-19 was strictly observed, the ceremony saw a broad section of NDC’s membership in attendance.
Immediate past Speaker of Parliament Edward Doe Adjaho as well as the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, were in attendance.
The 2020 Campaign Manager, Professor Joshua Alabi, was also present.
Conspicuously missing was founder Jerry John Rawlings, who is also the Chair of the Council of Elders. But the Council was represented by Vice Chair Alhaji Mahama Iddrisu.
Mr Ofosu Ampofo said the selection of a running mate by the party’s leader ices the cake for the NDC as it symbolises the battle-readiness for the December 7 elections.
He admitted that the selection of Prof. Opoku-Agyemang was difficult albeit pleasant.
“For the NDC, there are very many bright stars suitable and qualified to be chosen to the position of running mate.
“Unfortunately, however, the 1992 Constitution permits the flagbearer to select only one person to partner him or her in the presidential elections.
“It is in exercise of this mandate that the mantle of choice has fallen on our own illustrious Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, the choice that the incoming president of Ghana has made.”
He expressed optimism that the two shall reclaim power for the NDC.
