The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama has described his running mate for the 2020 General Election as a phenomenal person committed to the causes of women and students.
At a ceremony, in Accra, to outdoor his 26-member Campaign Team for the December 7 Election, the former president said he had no doubt that Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang will excel in her new role.
“Naana is a great person, distinguished, empathetic, principled and committed to promoting women and student causes.”
“I have for a very long time held the view that women must take their seat at the highest level of decision making,” he said.
He, therefore, thanked the National Executives of the NDC for their unanimous endorsement of the first female to head a public university – the University of Cape Coast (2008-2013).
