Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu Ekuful has said that the choice of Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang as running mate to former president John Mahama will make no difference to the NDC 2020 election bid.
According to the Ablekuma West MP, Jane Naana by the fact that she is a woman could by her nomination win the sympathy of all Ghanaian women should she have played a major role for women in general before her nomination.
“What has Jane Naana done for women, I mean what has she done. You see, by the fact that she is a woman that could draw a lot of women to herself but she has done nothing” she said on Onua Tv’s Ghana Maakye.
Former President John Mahama on Monday announced the former Vice-Chancellor for the University of Cape Coast as his running mate for December polls.
The former Minister prevailed after stiff competition from former finance ministers and governor of the Central Bank Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, who is deemed to be favoured by the grassroots of the party.
This the first time any of the two major political parties is going into an election with a woman on the presidential ticket.
