Official: Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang Is Mahama’s Running Mate – Former President John Mahama has settled on former Education Minister Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang as his running mate for the 2020 elections.
The former president announced this Monday afternoon via Twitter after several speculations in the media.
“The @OfficialNDCGh, this afternoon, unanimously, endorsed my nomination of Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as my Running Mate for the December 2020 election. She is God-fearing, a distinguished scholar, a conscientious public servant & a role model,” he wrote.
The previous minister won after solid rivalry from previous finance minister and governor of the Central Bank Dr. Kwabena Duffour, who is considered to be supported by the grassroots of the party.
This the first time any of the two major political parties is going into an election with a woman on the presidential ticket.
If the NDC wins the December polls, she will be the first female Vice President of Ghana.
