When it comes to choosing a running mate, Asiedu Nketia doesn’t make the cut as he is too ugly to be a running mate.
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has alerted the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress that his “ugly” looks disqualifies him from being a running mate to former President Mahama.
In an interview on the Wontumi Morning Show, Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako explained that John Mahama is not looking forward to select an intelligent running mate but rather a good looking partner.
“Asiedu Nketia should step away. You are too ugly to be a running mate. John Mahama won’t select you. You ugliness has disqualified in the books of John Mahama. Instead of the NDC thinking about somebody who can match the brilliance of Vice President Dr. Bawumia, they are busy looking for somebody with looks”, the NPP Chairman known as Chairman Wontumi said.
Asiedu Nketia Prepares To Partner JM
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah has confessed that he is highly interested in partnering Mr. Mahama as his running mate for the 2020 general elections.
He however maintains that he will not campaign for the position.
“I look at the responsibilities so if you are asking me whether I am prepared to carry out that responsibility, I will say yes I am prepared to carry that responsibility if in the opinion of the flag bearer and others I should carry it to enhance our chances of winning. I won’t run away from that.
But beyond that, I am not campaigning to be running mate because it doesn’t take a campaign to be a running mate. It’s the decision of the flag bearer supported by the Council of Elders and National Executives Committee.
That is why you haven’t seen me going anywhere telling people that I want to be running mate this is my campaign team and this is my message and so on. When I was contesting as a General Secretary I did that because I know that what will get me to be the General Secretary will be the contest but this one there is no contest”, he noted.
