Former deputy minister of communications under the erstwhile Rawlings administration, Owuraku Amofah, has stated that foreign affairs minister Hanna Tetteh will make a good presidential candidate for the NDC after President John Mahama.
According to Owuraku Amofah the experiences gathered by Ms. Tetteh over the years and her gender give her an edge over a potential aspirant like Dr. Spio Gabrah.
“The thing is, Dr. Spio Gabrah will make a fine leader, but Hanna Tetteh is a woman and probably we might need the soft touch...I think Hanna can do it,” he said.
President Mahama is leading the NDC for the last time into the 2016 elections as the constitution guarantees only two tenures of eight years for a president. Mahama comes against his political arch rival Nana Akufo-Addo of the NPP in the November 7, polls.
