Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyeman says many Ghanaians who lost the interest to vote in the 2020 general elections have been energized to do so following her nomination as the running mate to flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama.
She says such Ghanaians must endeavour to vote in the upcoming polls and vote for the NDC because “we do not intend to disappoint you.”
Delivering her first public address at her unveiling ceremony in Accra, the former Education Minister said her nomination has given women and other groups the chance to make their dreams come true.
“Many are those who are now more energized to vote, thanks to the momentous decision of JM. I urge them to do just that. We do not intend to disappoint you,” she said.
She added that “JM [John Mahama], by your choice, you have turned the struggles of so many women who have come before this moment into a probability. We- men, women, our youth and children- we all have a chance to finally make real our dreams of serving this country at high levels, of removing doubts and proving once again that we are capable.”
Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, who is partnering former President John Mahama into the 2020 elections, said her choice, is an “act of faith” which she does not take lightly and will commit to the responsibilities of working for the benefit of Ghanaians.”
She said she will particularly work to ensure that the “voices and concerns of our children, our youth and our aged, and our persons with disabilities are reflected in critical decisions.”
