Leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof Kwamena Ahwoi has revealed Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang was not his preferred choice for the party’s running mate.

Even though he did not mentioned his preferred candidate, Prof Ahwoi said he had to support Prof Opoku-Agyemang immediately her appointment was announced.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Kojo Yankson, Prof Ahwoi described the NDC running mate as a good material for the new role.

He also said her appointment has caused some level of confusion in the governing NPP as the NDC chart a new course by nominating a woman.

“It is not time yet. Otherwise, I would reveal to you what I did and who my preferred choice was for the running mate position. Jane was not my choice but the moment she was announced I accepted her because she is a good material” Prof Ahwoi.

‘She was President Mahama’s education minister. She was not my Education Minister. If anybody should be a better judge of her as a politician; it should be Mahama’ he said.

The Former Minister for Local Government and Rural Development also described the pairing of John Mahama and Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as a brilliant ticket.

He recommended the NDC ticket to Ghanaians as we draw close to December 7 elections.
