The University of Cape Coast (UCC) branch of the Tertiary Education Institutions Network (TEIN) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has appealed to John Dramani Mahama to maintain Prof Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang as his running mate for the 2024 Presidential elections.

According to them “maintaining Prof. Opoku-Ayemang will increase the party’s chances in the 2024 polls”.

In a statement signed by the branch communication officer, Dr. Jerry Paul Ninnoni and signed by its chairman, Dr. Vincent Assanful, they hold the view that  Prof Naana Opoku-Agyemang as the first female Vice Chancellor of a public university in Ghana will ginger the female floating voters to vote for the NDC in the upcoming presidential elections.

 “The selection of a credible Running Mate is as crucial a task as it is for the election of a credible Flagbearer. For us in the NDC once the first hurdle (election of a credible Flagbearer has been achieved with nearly 100% endorsement) we need to direct our energies towards selecting a Running Mate that is appealing to members of the NDC and especially those outside the NDC fraternity. Therefore, we believe what we can do as committed members of the NDC fraternity is to aid the selection process by bringing out the strengths as we know it of potential Running Mate. In this regard, we wish to add our voice to the numerous voices from within and outside the NDC to reaffirm our support for Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as the Running Mate for the National Democratic Congress in the 2024 Presidential Election”. They argued.

They observed that Prof Naana Opoku-Agyemang made history in the country when she was appointed as the first female Vice Chancellor of a public university in Ghana when assumed the position at the University of Cape Coast in 2008 indicating this could be a cash cow for the NDC in 2024.
