Bawumia and NPP copying Mahama: Female Running Mate to be Appointed-Joyce Bawah

An aide to a former president of Ghana and leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, has hinted that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is looking at nominating a woman for the running mate slot.

She said in 2020 when Mahama took the bold decision of choosing a woman, he was slammed by the New Patriotic Party.

However, John Dramani Mahama stood his ground and asserted that it was time a woman took the mantle as a running mate.

“While the decision was derided by some political opponents and even by some female leaders, Mahama’s opponents are now scrambling to nominate a female running mate after realising the importance of his decision,” she said.

John Mahama is considered one of the most influential politicians in Africa.

In 2020, he made a bold decision by choosing a female running mate, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, which was surprising for many. However, this decision was widely respected and accepted.

Mahama is said to have chosen a female running mate based on research and a rigorous analysis of Ghana’s current political environment.

“His choice was made easier because his chosen nominee herself has an accomplished academic background, bringing a strong sense of confidence and experience to the table. It is also a testament to her lifelong struggle and the triumph of the struggle.

“While the decision was derided by some political opponents and even by some female leaders, Mahama’s opponents are now scrambling to nominate a female running mate after realising the importance of his decision.”
