Appointing Prof. Naana As Running Mate Was A Big Mistake, It Created Divisions – Stephen Atubiga

Stephen Atubiga, a leading member of the National Democratic Congress has revealed that John Mahama’s decision to pick Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as running mate worked against their party in the 2020 elections.

According to him, the decision created animosity within the ranks of the party, with some people angry that an ‘outsider’ was picked instead of a grassroots person.

“In the 2020 Elections, the same faceless NDC people who facilitated JDM’s defeat in 2016 came around deceptively to support him finish his last term in 2020 with the hope of getting a running mate coming from any of their blocks,” Atubiga said in a press statement released Saturday.

“Our founder, the late President J.J. Rawlings unambiguously told us that the choice of JDM’s running mate [Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang] wasn’t his choice……“Remember most of those who contested JDM for the presidential ticket are either grassroots persons or have been in the party longer than JDM.

“This critical decision of picking Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang activated another internal hatred for JDM going into the 2020 Election, “ parts of Atubiga’s statement read.
