The John Mahama 2020 campaign has dismissed as false reports of names making the round as his choice of running mate.
The latest name making the round is that of Member of Parliament for Klottey Korle and daughter of founder of the National Democratic Congress Zanetor Rawlings.
There has also been an earlier report of former President Mahama, who is the leading contender in the NDC’s Flagbearer race, favouring former Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa Kwesi Ahwoi as his running mate.
Other names that have been mooted are Alfred Okoe Vanderpuye and Kojo Oppong Fosu among others.
In a brief statement, Spokesperson for the John Mahama 2020 campaign James Agyenim described the reports as false.
“Mr. Mahama is presently focused on both his NDC flag bearer campaign and his official duties. Therefore, Ghanaians should disregard all such conjectures,” he stated.
It is however unclear whether the statement means the names that have popped up in the public domain have been ruled out for the job.
Meanwhile, the list of running mate options for the former President continues to grow.
