“Pressure Mounts on John Dramani Mahama to Consider Daniel Yaw Domelevo as Running Mate, Alleges Media Personality”
Media personality Paul Adom Otchere has alleged that former President John Dramani Mahama is facing increasing pressure to replace his 2020 running mate, Professor Jane Nana Opoku-Agyemang, with former Auditor General Daniel Yaw Domelevo for the upcoming 2024 general elections. Otchere claimed that this recommendation arises from the belief in Domelevo’s innocence regarding corruption allegations.
According to Otchere, multiple voices have advised President Mahama to consider Domelevo as a means to address and dispel any corruption charges against him. The recent victory of Domelevo in the Supreme Court has reportedly intensified this pressure, leading to speculation about his potential role in the upcoming elections.
President Mahama’s current running mate for the 2020 elections, Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang, may not be selected again for the 2024 elections. Suggestions have been made for President Mahama to choose Domelevo as his running mate, as Domelevo is perceived as someone capable of combating corruption and enhancing President Mahama’s image in that regard. It is also noted that the Ewe community, which traditionally provides strong support to the National Democratic Congress (NDC), is calling for their representation, as Domelevo is of Ewe descent. This way, President Mahama could secure Ewe votes and address election challenges, as per the claims made by Otchere.
The situation is being closely monitored, and the decision regarding the running mate for President Mahama in the 2024 elections remains uncertain at this point.
“Mounting Pressure on John Mahama to Select Domelevo as Running Mate for 2024, Reports Indicate”
According to reports, there is increasing pressure on former President John Mahama, urging him to consider appointing Daniel Yaw Domelevo as his running mate for the upcoming 2024 elections. Domelevo is being hailed as someone capable of effectively addressing corruption issues and bolstering President Mahama’s reputation in that domain. The mounting pressure has prompted discussions and speculation about the potential reshuffling of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) ticket.
While Professor Jane Nana Opoku-Agyemang served as President Mahama’s running mate in the 2020 elections, it remains uncertain if she will be chosen again for the 2024 elections. Recent statements by Professor Kwamena Ahwoi advocating for the retention of Opoku-Agyemang indicate the existing pressure on Mahama to make a decision.
John Mahama, who previously served as President of Ghana from 2012 to 2016, lost to President Akufo-Addo in the 2016 election and was unsuccessful in his bid for presidency again in the 2020 election. However, he has been re-elected as the flagbearer of the NDC for the 2024 elections and maintains confidence in his ability to secure victory and implement the changes he believes Ghana needs. The ongoing discussions surrounding the choice of running mate contribute to the dynamics of the upcoming election campaign.
