Lawyer cum radio presenter, Adakabre Frimpong Manso, has accepted to be the running mate of Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) founder, Madam Akua Donkor.
The female politician had indicated in an earlier interview that she has consulted with her sponsors and decided to appoint Neat FM presenter as his running mate for the 2020 elections.
Akua Donkor is gunning to have her face on the presidential ballot paper.
She muted in the interview that her decision to select Mr. Adakabre Frimpong Manso who has a law background as her running mate is hinged on the fact that not many people take her seriously because she is unlettered.
Commenting on his appointment on Accra-based Angel FM as monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com, Mr Adakabre said he is ready to help Madam Akua Donkor achieve her vision of leading Ghana one day.
“I am ready to transform Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) and make it better….she approached me and I agreed…,” he said.
According to him, some big shots in the country impressed upon him to accept the offer because they believed in the vision and aspirations of the unlettered farmer.
The Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) is a registered party recognized by the Electoral Commission of Ghana. The party’s national headquarters is at Kebu in the Akuapem North Municipality of the Eastern region.
Akua Donkor, an unlettered farmer started making headlines in 2012 when she showed up to contest the presidential election. She was disqualified.
She decided to give the presidential slot a second shot in 2016, choosing an equally uneducated lady as her running mate. She was again disqualified together with other presidential candidates.
Though the issue landed in court, others were cleared to contest the 2016 presidential election but she was not successful.
