According to reports, Agbogbomefia of Asogli State, Togbe Afede XIV, is prepared to give up his stool to become the running mate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama. Ivan Tsidi Akrobortu is a major advocate for the Change Makers Forum.
This is in response to graphic.com.gh’s news that Togbe Afede’s name appeared on the list of candidates that might be taken into consideration to run with John Dramani Mahama in the upcoming 2024 elections.
As per the article, Tsidi Akrobortu recommended that Agbogbomefia be chosen by the NDC as Mahama’s running partner, citing his potential to make a significant effect and raise the party’s electoral chances.
He maintained that due to his knowledge of banking, entrepreneurship, finance, and economics all of which are essential for managing Ghana’s economy the paramount chief is the best candidate.
According to the report, the Change Makers Forum, a center-left political organization that aims to influence leadership through advocacy, has suggested that in order to prevent a recurrence of the nation’s current economic problems, the next vice president should be able to offer solutions for both present and future issues.
There are rumors that the party has limited the options for Mahama’s running mate to three regions: Ashanti, Central, and Eastern. The regions are represented by Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, Julius Debrah, and Kwame Awuah-Darko, in that order.
As Mr. John Dramani Mahama’s running mate in the general election held in December 2020, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang was not successful in winning the race. Her loss of her home region of the central region and her lack of additions to the ticket have drawn criticism.
Next in line for the NDC ticket is Julius Debrah, who served as chief of staff under the previous John Mahama administration from January 2013 until January 2017. Eastern Region is his native place.
