Former president John Dramani Mahama has described as false, reports in the media tipping Professor Kwesi Botchwey as his running mate.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC ) flag bearer for the 2020 elections in a tweet said;
“Fake News. The Daily Graphic report of the selection of a running mate is false.”
According to reports in sections of the media, the NDC leader had settled on Ghana's longest-serving Finance Minister, Kwesi Botchwey as the party’s running mate for the polls in December 2020.
Meanwhile, there are other competing interests.
There are some other people lobbying for the position and they have all thrown their curriculum vitae (CV) for consideration.
Key names such as Dr Kwabena Duffuor, Kwesi Ahwoi, Prof John Gatsi, Nii Okoi Dsane, Alex Mould are some of the names that have prominently come up for the running mate position.

But sources close to Mahama say he [Mahama] was relaxed about who will become his running mate since he has gone through the process of selecting a running mate before, in 2012 and 2015, and he has always had a fair idea of who he will select for the 2020 elections.
The NDC party is currently doing a broad consultation on who to partner Mahama.
