Running mate to Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, Peter Kwame Asamoah has refuted reports suggesting that the National Democratic Party flagbearer has withdrawn from the presidential race.
He stated in an interview with Joy News Monday that the party is focused on pursuing its agenda for this year’s Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
“That statement is false and should be disregarded. Her Excellency Dr. Mrs. Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings certainly has not withdrawn. She’s still in the race and currently, we are on a national tour,” he said.
Meanwhile, the party is set to address the media later today, and it has been speculated that it is to address speculations that Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings has withdrawn from the 2020 General Elections.
But running mate Peter Asamoah is asking Ghanaians to equally dismissed those claims.
“That is also not true. I am surprised at whoever is spreading that information. Because we all know ballot papers have already been printed and nationwide distribution is even completed, so Her Excellency Dr. Mrs. Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings cannot withdraw.
“Whoever is spreading the information is liable for spreading false information because the party structure has not issued any statement to that effect,” he added.
Accompanied by a few ranking members of the party, the NDP running mate is currently campaigning at Ellembelle in the Western Region.
