A former Minister of Education, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, has said her nomination as running mate to the flag bearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is not a personal achievement but rather victory for inclusive and participatory democracy.
“This historic nomination is not a personal achievement but victory for inclusive and participatory democracy, which enhances the credentials of our country and recognizes the towering role women have played over the ages to achieve the progress we have made”, she noted.
In her acceptance not to Mr. John Dramani Mahama and the NDC fraternity over her nomination, the former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) said she has worked with former Ghanaian leader closely and could vouch for his integrity and courageousness.
“I have worked with H. E. John Dramani Mahama closely and I know he is a man of vision, a leader you can trust, a public servant of integrity and a courageous leader who makes the right decisions in the national interest at all times”, she said.
She expressed her profound gratitude to the Founder of the NDC, Jerry John Rawlings, the Council of Elders, the National Executive Committee and the rank and file of the party for the overwhelming endorsement of her nomination, pledging to diligently apply herself and dedicate all her energy and intellect she could muster to ensure a resounding victory for the NDC in the 2020 general elections.
