The Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA) has tipped former Second Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Johnson Asiama, to become the running-mate of John Dramani Mahama.

According to a report by ASEPA, Dr. Asiama is likely to be picked as the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) vice presidential candidate ahead of the 2020 polls.

Mahama became the NDC’s presidential aspirant-elect after beating off competition from six other candidates.

Meanwhile, former finance minister, Dr. Kwesi Botchwey, failed flagbearer hopeful, Joshua Alabi and former education minister, Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, were also captured as possible picks.
