Joyce Bawa Mogtari has justified the selection of Naana Opoku Agyemang as the running mate of the NDC.
The Special Aide for Mahama Mogtari on Eyewitness News said the President’s choice presents an opportunity to “bring a female to the table.”
In his submission, she said, many people lobbied for the same position but the mantle fell on Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang.
“Certainly there were many people, many people lobbied for the position, but after all consultation, the mantle fell on Professor Naana Opoku-Agyemang. We do know that the process towards selecting the running mate is one of consultation, one of mediation and one of engagement.”
Ms. Bawa Mogtari believes that Mahama’s running mate will make history and she’s the fantastic choice.
“I think she is on the verge of making history as a running mate to John Dramani Mahama in the 2020 election. I believe this is a fantastic choice. A choice of a great woman. A trailblazer in her own right. I think John Dramani Mahama has set the record that the largest opposition has taken no other person than Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang to compete in the election come 2020.”
Ms. Mogtari insisted that Prof. Naana Opoku Agyemang “is very competent and has distinguished herself in every position she has occupied.
