Former Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Koku Anyidoho has waded into the ongoing conversation regarding who the party’s flagbearer John Dramani Mahama should choose as his 2024 running mate.
The Atta Mills Institute CEO advocated for the retention of Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang who was the running mate in the 2020 general elections.
In a tweet on Sunday, September 17, Mr. Koku Anyidoho said the former President will stay in opposition for 1 million years if he replace Professor Naana Opoku-Agyemang with his former Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah.
“I am making an open declaration; let John Mahama dare drop Jane Naana Agyemang and choose Julius Debrah as his running mate and he will stay in opposition for 1 million years,” he wrote.
“Since the NDC led by John Mahama, has decided to become a key soap concert party, with the likes of Julius Debrah organizing senseless walks to canvass for support to become running mate, I am removing my gloves & hit very hard at the jaws of the Flagbearer. Complete nonsense!” added Mr. Koku Anyidoho.
Meanwhile, another faction within the opposition party is routing for businessman Lesslie Mensah Tamakloe to be chosen as the next running mate.
They say it is time for the party to reward its stronghold, the Volta region with a top appointment, coupled with the fact that Mr. Lesslie Mensah Tamakloe is very fit to perform.
