NDC flagbearer John Dramani Mahama has finally settled on former Education Minister, Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as running mate.
Prof Opoku- Agyemang beat former Finance Minister Dr Kwabena Duffuor who was assured of the slot after Dr Kwesi Botchwey turned down the offer on personal reasons mostly on trust.
Mahama succeeded in convincing the regional chairmen of the party who had earlier described the former Education Minister as a ‘non starter’.
Report reaching DGN Online indicates that the NDC leadership had turned down the choice of running mate selected by the flagbearer, John Mahama.
At a hurriedly arranged meeting of regional chairpersons of the party at the NDC regional office in Accra on Sunday evening, ahead of NEC meeting on Monday, the chairmen flatly turned down the former Education Minister as the running mate to Mr Mahama.
