Professor Kwesi Botchwey, Ghana’s longest-serving Finance Minister has disclosed that he decided to step back in the running mate nomination of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The reason he said was to allow for fresh faces to take up that position and that anybody who is articulate and understands the fundamentals of governance fits that position.
He, however, disagreed with suggestions that it is only persons with economics background that fits the vice-presidential position or slot.
Responding to what he makes of the selection of Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as the running mate of Mr John Dramani Mahama, Prof Botchwey said she has what it takes to partner the NDC flagbearer.
He said she has proven track records to partner the flagbearer.
