The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has indicated his readiness to be the running mate of the party’s 2020 flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.

It was reported that the Chief Scribe of the NDC has jumped to the forefront of the running mate contest in the last few days. This is due to his rich experience, affability and seeming ability to mobilize the grassroots.

The report continued that the former President Mahama is likely to settle on Asiedu Nketia as his running mate.

The decision stems from the party’s desire to shore up its votes in the rural communities of the country ahead of the 2020 elections.

The choice of Asiedu Nketia means the NDC would then have met the north-south ticket arrangement for a flagbearer and running mate that has been synonymous with the two leading political parties here in Ghana since the return to multi-party democracy in 1993.

Party bigwigs have been tight-lipped on the issue as one of them who preferred to remain anonymous emphasized that the selection of a running mate was the preserve of the flagbearer.

Commenting on this on Accra-based Kasapa FM on Tuesday as monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com, the NDC secretary said he would gladly grab the opportunity to be the Running Mate of the former President.

“Who will not want to be the running mate of John Mahama? I am not lobbying to be the Running Mate, but I am ready to grab the opportunity…,” he said.
