NPP NPP running mate: I've not told anybody I'm interested in any position – Ursula Owusu
MON, 24 JUN 2024 LISTEN

The Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West constituency and Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has dismissed any claims of soliciting media or individuals to promote her candidacy as running mate to the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

The discourse around the nomination of a female running mate for the NPP's flagbearer has gained momentum, with names like Chief of Staff Akosua Frema Osei-Opare and Administrator of the District Assembly Common Fund, Naa Torshie, being circulated.

The Communications Minister’s name has also come up in the discourse but despite speculation linking her to the position, Mrs Owusu-Ekuful clarified that she has never actively expressed interest in becoming Dr. Bawumia's running mate.

“People may speculate my name but I have not told anybody that I am interested in any position. If the flagbearer thinks in his wisdom that I can assist him, why not?" the Communications Minister quizzed.

She dismissed any claims of soliciting media or individuals to promote her candidacy.

"No media person can ever say anywhere that I have contacted him to put my name out there or anybody for that matter.”

According to her, Dr. Bawumia should be allowed to choose whoever he thinks will partner him best in the upcoming polls.

I think the flagbearer should be given the space to choose who he thinks can best partner him. It will be great if a female is chosen and I made this call eight years ago," Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful added.
