Jane Opoku-Agyemang more than QUALIFIED to be Ghana’s Veep – Mahama


The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, has
expressed his gratitude to the national executives as well as members and supporters of the party for supporting his nomination of Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as Running Mate for this year’s presidential election.

Mr Mahama a week ago nominated his Minister for Education, Professor Naana Jane
Opoku-Agyemang, who is also Ghana’s first female Vice Chancellor of a public university as
his Running Mate.

Addressing a meeting of his campaign team over the weekend in Accra, the former
president said women have long proven themselves as equally qualified and very capable of  taking on the mantle of leadership at the highest levels.

Mr Mahama said his nomination of Professor Opoku-Agyemang is a good example of the
amplification of women who have worked hard to be where they are, and not tokenism.

He said the former university don deserves the position of running mate by dint of her hard
work and track record both as Minister of Education and Vice Chancellor of the University of
Cape Coast.

Touching on the current state of leadership in the country, Mr Mahama expressed concern
that at a time when people need leadership the most, leadership seems to be missing in the  country.

The former president said the NDC has a proven track record of providing capable
leadership even in times of adversity. He therefore urged members and supporters of the
party to work hard for victory in the December election so that leadership can be restored
to the nation.
