The newly elected presidential candidate of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor Kobina Greenstreet has revealed he would love to make former first lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings his running mate for the upcoming general election.
“I’m thinking of working with Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings as candidate and running mate,” Mr. Greenstreet told the host of Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana programme, Paul Adom-Otchere Tuesday night.
Greenstreet made his first in studio live interview since his election as flagbearer of the CPP in a shocking landslide victory last Saturday at the Trade Fair Center in Accra.
According to him, President Mahama has failed as a leader in delivering Ghanaians from all the economic hardship and the CPP if given the opportunity will turn things around.

“President Mahama has not succeeded as president of Ghana but the CPP will do far better,” he noted.
Touching on the power crisis in Ghana, Mr. Greenstreet admitted that the situation has improved in the last few months. “Dumsor is better now than [when I made] my controversial statement in 2014.”
Mr Greenstreet polled 1,288 votes out of the 1,992 valid votes cast to beat Samia Nkrumah - daughter of Dr Kwame Nkrumah - who obtained 579 votes and two other contestants to become the CPP’s presidential candidate.
