Mahama’s choice will shock many

Talking about Mahama’s running mate, the Deputy Secretary of the NDC, Mustapha Gbande says their choice of candidates will come as a shock to many.

“I believe that we’ll surely put a name out, a name that will shake the foundation of the NPP,” he said.

He jabbed the NPP stating that they are still struggling to find a suitable candidate to pair with their flagbearer, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia after failing to find anyone credible within their party.

“Currently they’re in the street begging people with credibility to come and pair, they don’t have confidence in any of the people they have groomed. They’re begging pastors to come and pair them,” he said.

According to Gbande, the NDC has the people and are looking forward to the NEC to approve John Mahama’s choice.
