All the 16 Regional Communication Officers of the opposition NDC congratulates Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang on her nomination as the Running Mate to former President John Dramani Mahana on his re-election bid.
The former President made the announcement at the party’s National Executive Committee today, Monday, July 6.
In a statement, the party's communicators stated, "The choice of a woman of valour and substance to the High Office of Running Mate and obviously our next Vice President emboldens the NDC as political lineage that truly believes in egalitarianism as well as appreciating women as critical partners to our nation's development."
They believe that this novelty in Ghana's political history shall draw the masses of all females as the party collectively strife to give greater space to women in development discourse.
Mahama's choice of Running Mate is unprecedented in the history of NDC as this represent the very first time a female has been selected to run on the party’s ticket as Running Mate, breaking the all-male female running mate syndrome.
Naana's nomination finally brings to closure months of speculations on who partner the former President to snatch back power from the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP).
