The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has unanimously approved the nomination of Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as the running mate to John Dramani Mahama, the party’s flagbearer for the 2024 elections.

This marks the second time that Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast and Minister of Education, will be partnering with former President John Dramani Mahama as his running mate on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) ticket for a major election.

Prior to her selection, several names were mentioned as potential running mates, including Julius Debrah, former Chief of Staff; Dr. Kwabena Duffour, former Finance Minister and Governor of the Bank of Ghana; Mr. Kwame Awuah Darko, former Chief Executive of Tema Oil Refinery and BOST; Kojo Bonsu, former Mayor of Kumasi; and Dr. Zanetor Agyemang-Rawlings, the NDC Member of Parliament for Korle Klottey Constituency.

Former President Mahama had earlier submitted the name of his preferred running mate to the National Executive Committee and the Council of Elders of the party for scrutiny.

The Council of Elders will prepare to gather on Thursday, March 7, 2024, to deliberate on the running mate nominee presented by Presidential Candidate John Dramani Mahama for the 2024 general elections.

According to the General Secretary of the party, Fifi Kwetey, the National Executive Committee will later gather at 2pm on the same day to further consider the nomination.

Mahama’s submission aligns with Section 45 of the party’s Constitution, which mandates the presentation of a nominee to the Council of Elders for consideration.
