Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George Nartey has said choosing Professor Naana Opoku Agyeman as running mate of John Mahama, presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) was perfect.

According to him picking of Professor Opoku Agyeman would work the trick for the NDC to be victorious in the upcoming 2020 presidential elections five months away.

“She is not only a woman but honest with integrity and proven track record. Twenty four hours after her nomination, with the attack on her no member of the ruling government, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said she is corrupt, dishonest or lack integrity”.

He further noted in an interview that both the NPP and NDC should be proud of Professor Opoku Agyeman because of three qualities; Ghanaians look for honesty, integrity and not being corrupt.

In a related development, when questioned on some developments making the rounds that the people from the Volta Region in the party are not happy about the running mate not coming from their region considering their contribution to the party, he pointed out that the Volta caucus has issued a statement congratulating the running mate and pledged their support to work with her extensively, and that is all that matters. “People would have their wishes it is legitimate but at the end of the day the larger interest of the party is what is needed”.

“Our party is a national party and has people from all the regions, rather the high handedness and lack of development in the region by this administration is an insult to them”.

The intimidation and attack on the people from the Volta Region is enough for them to kick out this “insensitive government”. The region is entitled to its fair share of the national cake and the region remains key on the agenda of the NDC.
