Nana Konadu unveils Kojo Mensah Sosu, a native of Volta Region to be her running mate for this year’s elections
The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings has unveiled her running mate for 2016 elections. The NDP Vice Presidential hopeful Kojo Mensah is a businessman and leader of some local football clubs in the country.
Nana Konadu explained that the NDP chose Mr Kojo Mensah because of his wide appeal to the youth who form more than half of the Ghanaian population. The NDP strongly believes that Kojo Mensah would attract the youth population to increase the party’s fortune in the upcoming polls.
Addressing party faithfuls at the outdooring of her Vice Presidential nominee, Nana Konadu called on Ghanaians to vote out the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the December polls. According to her, the NDC does not deserve a second term since it has failed in addressing various challenges Ghanaians are battling with.
Speaking at the event, 42-year-old Kojo Mensah, a native of Volta region, said the NDP will rule out marginalisation of the underclass when voted into power.
Nana Konadu officially filed her nomination papers as a presidential candidate last Thursday, a day before the deadline. This was to avoid a repeat of her misfortune in the 2012 election when the EC disqualified her on grounds of not filling out her nomination forms properly,
NDP joins the rank of political parties who have chosen their running mates from the Volta Region. The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) selected a former beauty queen and gender advocate Bridget Dzogbenuku, while the People’s National Convention (PNC) chose Emmanuel Anyidoho who is an economist.
